1796 Marriage of Jose Alejandro Garcia and Maria Manuela Flores, Reynosa Img 59
Last Names of Nuevo Leon

This is the November 24, 1796 marriage of Jose Alejandro Garcia and Maria Manuela Flores, who got married in Reynosa, Tamaulipas, Mexico. They are the 4th great-grandparents of my wife.

The record states that Jose Alexandro is the son of Miguel Garcia and Maria Casilda Alanis.

It also states that Maria Manuela is the daughter of Jose Antonio Flores and Maria Isabel Salinas.

A padrino listed is Maria Quiteria Alanis. I have an ancestor by that name but not sure if she is the same person.

Here is the transcription.
