• Background Information. 248
María López de Luna (15), native of Isleta jurisdiction in New Mexico, daughter of Capitán Diego de Luna and Elvira Garcia.

With Elvira's daughter named as María López de Luna in the Diligencias Matrimoniales, I can't help but wonder if Elivira was a López de García. This would have Elvira's daughter María and her husband related in some way because Francisco González Apodaca was the grandson of Sebastiana López de García.

Elvira married Diego de Luna Capitán, son of Unknown and María Jaramillo.287 (Diego de Luna Capitán was born about 1630 in Nuevo Méjico, Nueva España 252 and died after 1693 in Isleta, Río Abajo, Nuevo Méjico, Nueva España 252.)
