1737 Marriage of Marcos Salvador Flores and Maria Eufemia Lopez
Last Names of Nuevo Leon

This is the marriage November 8, 1737, marriage record of Marcos Salvador Flores and Maria Eufemia Lopez. They are my wife's 5th great-grandparents who got married in Cadereyta, Nuevo Leon, Mexico.

I have yet to discover who the parents of Marcos are and from information on a marriage dispensation we know that Eufemia's father was named Pedro Lopez who was the a natural son of Maria Josefa Lopez.

This record indicates that Marcos was form Monterrey and Eufemia from Cadereyta. This helps narrow my search. I will keep you posted if I find anything else on them. For now here is the transcription of the above image.

  1. Could this Marcos be a possiblity?? I have a Marcos Salvador Flores in my data base and he was baptized 20 Jul 1704 in Monterrey. His parents were Miguel Flores and Maria Martinez. Ref:Film 605147 Image 213:

  3. I am also descended from Marcos Flores on my mom's side. We are descended from his grandson, Urbano Flores. I have followed those leaves on Ancestry and have names going back farther, but not sure if they are correct. Before Marcos, info was kind of iffy. I have a family tree for the Flores family that I got from the historical section at UTPA.

  4. I am new to genealogy, so I'm having difficulty following how Maria Eugenia becomes Maria Euphemia. I've come across both names and, to me, it seems like they are two different names. Is there a basic transliteration from Spanish to English that I a missing? If so, is there some resource that can help me decipher this?

      1. Ah ok, so it is common knowledge that they are the same name, like Guaxardo is Guajardo, is Guaxdo., etc.. Still seems somewhat confusing as the sounds the names make when spoken are different, but either way, thank you for the clarifying response.
