Miguel, do you know where these people lived?  Could they be from Guanajuato, Mexico?  The names you mentioned seem similar to a family listed on the 1930 Mexican census from Salvatierra, Guanajuato.

San Nicolas de los agustinos very close to salva tierra

I searched for the name. This place in Mexico I think? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Salvatierra,_Guanajuato

Good to know for people from another part of the world like me wink

San Nicolás de los Agustinos in Salvatierra municipality: https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/6510263651#map=11/20.2458/-100.9664

Valle de Santiago, from which many of this family's relatives moved to San Nicolás de los Agustinos: https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/5857564714#map=10/20.3903/-101.1868

Here they are in the 1930 census in San Nicolás de Agustínos: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:S3HT-DR3Q-X3G?i=17

line 46 is Aaron Medrano, age 46; line 47 is Marselina Campos, age 39; line 48 is M Refugio Medrano, age 13, and there are two further siblings (ages 10 and 8) on the next two lines.

Maria Refugio's birth record (born 8 March 1916 in San Nicolas, if I read this correctly) is here: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:33S7-9RY8-ZQ2?i=521, left-hand side, middle of the page. This confirms the parents but unfortunately does not list the grandparents.

I suspect that Aaron may have been the Yrenio Vicente Medrano baptised 3 June 1881 in Valle de Santiago (which is less than 20 miles from San Nicolas) as child of Juan Medrano and Eleuteria Garcia. See https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:33S7-9G2M-6G7?i=137, left-hand side, top record

do you know where I could look up marriage records

Miguel:

familysearch.org has a searchable index of the Catholic Church records of Guanajuato from 1519 to 1984 at https://www.familysearch.org/search/collection/1860831. I did not find a marriage of Aaron Medrano or Marcelina Campos there, so is it possible they did not have a church wedding? Or else the indexer mangled their names (which is always a distinct possibility with these databases).

familysearch.org also has the Civil Registration records for Guanajuato from 1862 to 1930 at https://www.familysearch.org/search/collection/1922031. This collection has not been indexed by them, but it has been indexed by ancestry.com (which, unlike familysearch.org, is a paysite). If you have an ancestry.com account, you can search the Guanajuato civil marriage records at https://www.ancestry.com/search/collections/60438/. Unfortunately, I have not found a marriage for Aaron Medrano and Marcelina Campos there, either (there was a Marcelina Campos of Jaripitiro who married a Leandro Arroyo in 1912, but I'm sure that's a different Marcelina Campos).

The 1930 census does state that both Aaron and Marcelina were born in Guanajuato, but perhaps they got married out-of-state.
