  1. Was Gregoria o Gregorio?

    I belive Diego and Elvira had two sons: Diego and Gregorio.

    Actually Gregorio married Beatriz GARZA Falcón Gonzalez Hidalgo, or not?

  2. Hi Moises, Oscar Garcia here, I’m confused about Mayor de Renteria, she is married both to Juan Fernandex de Castro and also Capt Marcus Alonso de Trevino ?? Can you clarify ? Is Clara de Trevino Renteria and Elvira half sisters somehow?

    1. Elvira is the daughter of Mayor Renteria and Juan Fernandez de Castro. Clara is the daughter of Alonso de Trevino and Maria Mayor Sebastiana de Renteria. Maria Mayor Sebastiana de Renteria is the granddaughter of Mayor de Renteria and Juan Fernandez de Castro. Search for them in our community tree to better see the connections.
