I am looking for information about the following family:
JUAN ELIGIO DE LA GARZA m. MARIA DE JESUS SERNA on October 20, 1830 at San Carlos Iglesia in Marin, Nuevo Leon, Mexico.
I believe this couple had eight children: 1.) Juan Bautista de la Garza,(my ancestor) c. Aug. 31, 1833.He married Ma. Geronima Gutierres on Jan. 28, 1857 at La Asuncion, Marin; 2.) Ma. Isadora de la Garza; 3.) Jose Julio de la Garza; 4.) Ma. Gavina de Jesus; 5.) Ma. Demetria; 6.) Jose Heciquio; 7.) Juan Eutimio; and 8.) Ma. Ygnacia de la Garza.
I need information about the parents of JUAN ELIGIO DE LA GARZA and MARIA DE JESUS SERNA.
I believe that JUAN ELIGIO DE LA GARZA may have come from Salinas Victoria but the only fact I know about him is that he died before 1857 (his son's marriage record (JAUN BAUTISTA) stated that his father, JUAN ELIGIO, was "ya difunto" at the time of his marriage to GERONIMA GUTIERRES).
I believe that MARIA DE JESUS SERNA is the daughter of JOSE FRANCISCO SERNA and MARIA JOSEFA ANTONIA VILLARREAL but I lack evidence.I believe her birthdate to be November 30, 1813 and that her paternal gradparents are JOSE ANTONIO SERNA and MARIA JOSEFA DE ESCAMILLA and that her maternal grandparents are JOSE MANUEL CALLETANO VILLARREAL and MARIA FRANCISCA JAVIERA SALDIVAR and that both sets of grandparents were married in and "from" Salinas Victoria.
I would be very grateful for any information about JUAN ELIGIO DE LA GARZA and/or MARIA DE JESUS SERNA, their children, or their parents, grandparents, etc.This is where I am stuck!Thanks, Cate.
