I am helping my boyfriend research his family. His Fuentes family comes from Coahuila, Mexico. I have been able to find his great grandfather, BLAS FUENTES' marriage record in Parras, Coahuila, Mex in 1922. He married, Maria Mercedes Vasquez. His parents on the record say Margarito Fuentes (deceased at time of marriage) and his mother Dolores Leza (Lesa).
It also states that Blas was from Saltillo, Coahuila, Mex. I am unable to find his birth record in Saltillo. I believe he was born in 1902-1903.

My boyfriend is from Brownsville, TX and has relatives in Port Isabel and San Antonio. His grandmother is Guadalupe Fuentes and lived in Matamoros, Tamaulipas at one point before coming to Texas in 1961. His father does not know who his father is. His Fuentes name is from his grandmother. We are trying to piece together this puzzle, but is has been difficult. His grandmother won't disclose the name...

Thank you in advance.
