I'm hoping someone could help me out reading Nicolas Corvera's place of origin stated in the informacion matrimonial. It is listed on the first and second page. I read it is Taurillo de Leanos. The Informacion Matrimonial was taken in Villa Gutierre del Aguila in Villanueva, Zacatecas. Does anyone have a different interpretation of the aforementioned. If I am reading it correctly, does anyone know the location of said place? Here's the link:

Thank you for your time and consideration,

Sylvia Castañeda

Hi Sylvia,

Villa Gutierre del Águila and Villanueva are synonymous--Villanueva is the new name changed in the last century. The place of origin for Nicolás Corvera reads "Zaucillo de los Lianos" or in modern Spanish it should be "Saucillo de los Llanos."
