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."

Hi Sylvia, Ive been trying to find what I can about Nicolas Corvera and his parents Jose Trinidad Corvera and Petra Marquez. I saw in the Matrimonio of Nicolas Corvera that he was from Zaucillo de Leanos. Im more or less guessing that this is the same Saucillo located in the hills north east of Villanueva and east of La Quemada.
Looking at it from Google Earth it appears that there are walls or fences from previous habitation.
