AGUILAR 
Am seeking information from anyone in the following counties. Colfax, Mora, Harding, Union, and Taos counties. I'm searching for a baptism and marriage record for JOSE EULOGIO AGUILAR. Born approximately in 1854. He married Maria Gracia Leyba in approximately 1879.Maria Gracia Leyba was baptized in Penasco in 1857. All I know is that g-grandma Graica Leyba went to Trinidad, Colorado as a housekeeper for her brothers and met JOSE EULOGIO AGUILAR and they married and moved back to Ojo Sarco, New Mexico in the Penasco, Taos County, New Mexico area.
They baptized their children in the San Antonio Church, Penasco, Taos, County, New Mexico. I have already searched the Picuris, Penasco New Mexico, and Trinidad, Colorado LDS baptism and marriage records and have not found either a baptism or marriage record. Any help will be appreciated. I also heard that JOSE EULOGIO AGUILAR may have been a Presbyterian, however I believe that he was probably baptized Catholic and doubtful that they married in the Presbyterian faith since Maria Gracia Leyba was Catholic and their children were baptized and raised Catholic. Please email to: email Thank you.

Chavez / Rayetas
We are looking for information on the family of Rayetas, the wife of David Chavez of Chico Springs, Colfax County, NM. As of the
1900 census Rayetas was no longer alive. Different lines of this family were known to have moved to Mora county, Socorro County, and even into Colorado. Some of Rayetas' family members died at young adult ages, and were known to suffer from severe headaches. I was told one of Rayetas' daughters, Tomasa Chavez died in 1920 at the age of 22. Rayetas was dead by the age of 27. We do not have a surname for Rayetas, nor have any idea if any other family members suffered from severe headaches or brain tumors. It may be a genetic condition. Please contact Clarissa at henpeckerssociety@earthlink.net  and/or Tom at tvc1@sbcglobal.net  if you have any information to help track the family lines in question. Thanks! email

I am looking for information on the following families in Quay County: Fletcher, Fitzwater, and possibly Messick or Musick, as well as Clark.

I am need help, as I have reach an impasse in my research. I am looking for the Marriage records and Birth records of my Great-great grandparents.

There Names were Manuel GONZALES and Juana SANCHEZ here is the information I gathered via the census... Manuel GONZALES (b.1852 NM) and Juana SANCHEZ (b. 1855 NM) and married possibly in 1882 (my great-great grandparents) they appear in the 1900 NM
census Colfax Co., Springer, NM. They had 5 children listed in the census and 3 others that I know of: Felicitas b. 1879 Colorado Vincente b. 1882 Colorado Gabriel Jose b. 1885 Springer, NM. Eutimia b. 1891 Patrocinia b. ? Mitilde ? Lucadio ? Family Stories put them in a few different places Springer of course, Maxwell, Wagonmound, and Las Vegas. My own grandfather was raised by Juana in Las Vegas around the early 1920's. He passed away in 1973 so he is unavailable for questioning. Also Manuel was thought to have passed in the early 1900's I have been able to find a Manuel Gonzales b. 1851 in Pecos, Rio Arriba that looks like a good Candidate and a friend in Las Vegas sent me another possible candidate (Gonzales, Jose Manuel bap.2 Dec. 1850.) from Las Vegas. I got an email from a lady who told me Springer's Church had burned down and all the records destroyed and the graveyard had been destroyed by a flood in the early 1920's. Here is my question where do I go from here?? Any help would be greatly Appreciated. Thank You, Carolina Gonzáles-Branson

We're looking for data on Capt., Fort Union, William Rawle Shoemaker's wife, Julia, nee Hepburn, Shoemaker, 1810-1863. His dates are 1809-1886. We're particularly interested in where she was buried. Anything will be much appreciated. William Rawle Shoemaker IV

JOHNSON / JOHNSTON / DALE / CONLEY / BETTON / Le PLATS / DURANDS
My great, great grandfather, John E. JOHNSON/JOHNSTON, was born in 1821 and immigrated from Durham County England with his family to Blossburg, New Mexico in 1870's or 1880's. He was a mine foreman for the Raton Coal and Coke Company at Blossburg. And I think the mural in Shuler Theatre depicting the mining operation is possibly either my great great grandfather, John E. Johnson,or his son William Johnson.
John E. Johnson shot himself on a Saturday, in July 1895 according to an article in the Raton Register, and he is buried in Raton. No record has been found but the possibility is that he is buried in Fairmont cemetery along with his son in law George DALE, husband of Susan Johnson Dale. Newspapers of Raton mention his involvement in the community when Blossburg was thriving and coal was king. His daughters and husbands also were part of Blossburg.
1. Susan (Johnson) and George DALE are my great grandparents. George who died tragically at age 41, supposedly hit by a train near Sophris or Piedmont, Colorado. He is also buried in unknown and unmarked grave in Raton. He played the flute inThe Raton Dance Band. I believe his picture is in the book titled Ghost Towns and Mining Camps of New Mexico.
2. William and Isabella (Conley) JOHNSON
3. Grace (Johnson) and James CONLEY
4. Mary Ellen (Johnson) and William BETTON. I believe that other sons of John and Isabella JOHNSON , also lived either at Blossburg or Raton at some point and descendents may still be in New Mexico. His sons were Joseph, Robert, James and John. Other surnames associated with my JOHNSON and DALE lines who lived and worked in New Mexico before the 1900's were LePlats and Durands. There are5th, 6th and 7th generation of these ancestors still living near Trinidad, Colorado. My roots and my memories are etched in the history of Colfax County and the town of Raton and surrounding area. Nadine Williams Britton

MONDRAGON
I'm looking for records of the parents of and the baptism/christening record for Bernardo Mondragon, born February 2 or 21, 1869, probably in Mora County. I believe his mother was Guadalupe Mondragon, born about 1846 in Santa Fe County. I have no idea what her husband's name was or who he was. Any information or suggestion would be appreciated. Guadalupe Mondragon is listed in the 1860 U.S. Census. (See census sheet for Santa Gertrudes, Mora County, NM - Page No. 347 - recorded August 6, 1860 ( Ancestry.com Image No. 117.) Her age was given as 12 years old, and she was living in the household of her parents, Pedro Mondragon and Maria Rosalia Castellano. Guadalupe Mondragon is listed in the 1870 U.S. Census. (See census sheet for 1st Precinct, Mora, Mora County, NM - Page No. 301a - recorded July 23, 1870 / Ancestry.com Image No. 1.) Her age was given as 24 years old. She was still living in her parents' household. However, she apparently had the following five children between 1860 and 1870: Francisca Mondragon, age 7;
Juanota Mondragon, age 6;
Catalina Mondragon, age 5;
Macedonia Mondragon, age 4; and
Bernardo Mondragon, age 3.
Neither the 1860 nor the 1870 censuses show any men in Pedro Mondragon's household who appear to be Guadalupe Mondragon's husband or the father of her five children. I have yet to find Guadalupe Mondragon and her children in the 1880 U.S. Census, but they are no longer in her father's household. Guadalupe Mondragon had at least one other child, Raymundo Mondragon. The only records of a Raymundo Mondragon that I have found are: an LDS International Genealogical Index record of a marriage between a Raymundo Mondragon and a Moclovita Garcia on June 10, 1892 at Immaculate Conception Church in Las Vegas, San Miguel County, NM; and  a 1900 U.S. Census listing of Raymundo Mondragon, born July 1876, living in Las Vegas, San Miguel County, NM, and married to Flore Mondragon.  These Raymundo Mondragons may not be my Guadalupe Mondragon's son, but their ages and general locations near Mora make them likely her son. email

ORTEGA
Looking for the connection, if any, of Manuel Ortega who was one of the 76 citizens requesting in 1817 the establishment of a church in Mora, to José Guadalupe Ortega who received land in the Mora under the Mexican Land Grant of 1835; and if Juan de Jesús Ortega is a descendant of either one or both of these early settlers of Mora County. Juan de Jesús Ortega was born about 1825, married María de la Luz Rodarte in about 1839, and was residing in the Golondrinas precinct of that county for the 1860 census: Juan Ortega, 35; María Luz Rodarte, 32; Simón Ortega, 15; Manuel Ortega, 10; Carmel Ortega, 8; Trinidad Ortega, 6. Other children were: María Eleuteria (1856-1859), Juanita who was born in San Antonio de Arriba in 1859, and likely Juan A. Ortega born about 1840 and who was living in Lower Rociada, San Miguel Co., in 1900. Please note that there were two persons of the same name --- Juan de Jesús Ortega ---- born in 1819 and 1820 in Chimayó but with no apparent connection to the one living in Mora County. María de la Luz Rodarte was the daughter of Joaquín Rodarte and María de la O Mestas. This family was in San Juan in 1816, El Valle de San Antonio (Mora) in 1845, and in Rincón de Tecolote (San Miguel) in 1853. Joaquín Rodarte's father, Manuel, was also among those on the list of petitioners for the Mora church in 1817. My wife descends from Juan de Jesús Ortega and Luz Rodarte and we would very much appreciate any information on these families. Thank you. Victor Jeter

CARRILLO
Jose CARRILLO was born 21 August 1833 in Valencia County, New Mexico
(probably in Manzano). He died date unknown on the Mescalero Apache
Reservation in Otero County. Family history had it that he left his wife for an Apache woman. I'm wondering what became of him in his later years. The only clues I have are these:
In the 1880 Census, Jose was living with his wife, Nicanora MARQUEZ in the city of Lincoln in Lincoln County, New Mexico. Living with them were their children Mariano, Teresa, Juana, Beatrice, and Birjinia. An older child, Doroteo, was already married and living on his own in Lincoln by then.
In the 1900 Census, there is a Jose CORRILLA (color: Mex, age: 59) living on the Mescalero Apache Reservation with his wife Charlie (age 44), children John (age 20), Beatrice (18), Juanita (16), Guadalupe (13), Mary (10), Anita (5), and Genita (2).
In Eve Ball's book, Indeh, she has a brief biography of a Jose CARILLO based on interviews with those who knew him. There's a slight variation in the spelling of his name, and a big variation in his life story, compared to the Jose CARRILLO I'm researching. I'd greatly appreciate it if anyone could tell me if I'm on the right track or what other resources to search in order to solve this mystery. Thank you very much. Annette Wasno

He married a Bertha Fitzwater--my grandmother, in 1918. There only child, my father, was Charles Fletcher. William H. Fletcher married Martha Messick (or Musick, or Music) in Coffee County, Tennessee and had eleven children there. They moved west around the turn of the century--1900. I do not know why they would have moved so relatively late in life and from a more fertile land to the semi-arid land. The homesteads were eight miles north of Endee. Endee is on I-40 (it has its own exit) and bout 3 miles from the Texas border. Any help would be appreciated. John L. Fletcher

JOHNSON / JOHNSTON / DALE / CONLEY / BETTON / Le PLATS / DURANDS
My great, great grandfather, John E. JOHNSON/JOHNSTON, was born in 1821 and immigrated from Durham County England with his family to Blossburg, New Mexico in 1870's or 1880's. He was a mine foreman for the Raton Coal and Coke Company at Blossburg. And I think the mural in Shuler Theatre depicting the mining operation is possibly either my great great grandfather, John E. Johnson, or his son William Johnson.
John E. Johnson shot himself on a Saturday, in July 1895 according to an article in the Raton Register, and he is buried in Raton. No record has been found but the possibility is that he is buried in Fairmont cemetery along with his son in law George DALE, husband of Susan Johnson Dale. Newspapers of Raton mention his involvement in the community when Blossburg was thriving and coal was king. His daughters and husbands also were part of Blossburg.
1. Susan (Johnson) and George DALE are my great grandparents. George who died tragically at age 41, supposedly hit by a train near Sophris or Piedmont, Colorado. He is also buried in unknown and unmarked grave in Raton. He played the flute in the Raton Dance Band. I believe his picture is in the book titled Ghost Towns and Mining Camps of New Mexico.
2. William and Isabella (Conley) JOHNSON
3. Grace (Johnson) and James CONLEY
4. Mary Ellen (Johnson) and William BETTON. I believe that other sons of John and Isabella JOHNSON , also lived either at Blossburg or Raton at some point and descendents may still be in New Mexico. His sons were Joseph, Robert, James and John. Other surnames associated with my JOHNSON and DALE lines who lived and worked in New Mexico before the 1900's were LePlats and Durands. There are 5th, 6th and 7th generation of these ancestors still living near Trinidad, Colorado. My roots and my memories are etched in the history of Colfax County and the town of Raton and surrounding area.

ROMERO
I am seeking any information on a famous NM pastore of the 1800's named Casimero Romero. He was born in 1833 and his family settled in Mora county.

In 1896, Casimero move to Bard, NM where he continued sheep ranching until he died in 1912. I believe that my aunt is either the daughter or granddaughter of José and am trying to verify or disprove this. Any help either genealogical or historical would be greatly appreciated.

Also Manuel was thought to have passed in the early 1900's I have been able to find a Manuel Gonzales b. 1851 in Pecos, Rio Arriba that looks like a good Candidate and a friend in Las Vegas sent me another possible candidate (Gonzales, Jose Manuel bap.2 Dec. 1850.) from Las Vegas.

LOPEZ / MARTIN(EZ
Would like to correspond with anyone researching the Jose Ramon Lopez/Maria dela Luz Martin(ez) family of Rio Arriba/Taos/Mora counties.  What I do know: Jose Ramon & Maria dela Luz had at least 3 known children: Maria Guadalupe Lopez, b. 12 Apr 1807 Martines, NM Terr.; Maria Theodora Lopez, b. 1 Apr 1809, Puente  NM Terr.; m. Manuel Lefebre in Taos Co and moved to Mora Co. Maria Josefa Lopez, b. ca 1820, Rio Arriba Co. (according to census), m. Jua Bautista Duran, Taos Co., moved to Mora Co. I thought I had found a baptism for Maria - 27 Mar 1787, Abiquiu - d/ Anto Joseph Martin and Maria Guadalupe Santistevan. Which would make this Maria dela Luz a granddaughter of Jose Gregorio Martin and Micaela Valdez! But I found an interesting comment on the HGRC Great Database saying that many people confuse Jose Martin and Micaela Valdez with the other Jose Gregorio Martin and Micaela Valdez. 
Then I found the following: Francisca Guillerma, daughter of Teodora Lopez and Manuel Lefebre gave testimony in Mora Co., 1892 that her "grandmother was Maria Martinez, wife of Ramon Lopez and that they were from the Pueblo of Abique and they were descendants of the ancient Pueblo Indian and that their children and granchildren on the female side are descendants of the Pueblo Indians of Abique and have Indian blood in their veins." I take this to mean that Maria dela Luz's mother was an Abiquiu Indian. Which would confirm that the Maria dela Luz Martin that I found is not the same as the wife of Ramon Lopez since that Maria dela Luz is of spanish descendant tracing back through the Santistevan families. 
I have not been able to find a definite baptism for Jose Ramon Lopez - the one I did find married someone else!  And I have not been able to find a marriage for Jose Ramon and Maria dela Luz Martin.

TRUJILLO / LOPEZ
My Great Grandfather is named Lucas de Jesus Trujillo from El Rito, New Mexico. He married a Maria Manuela de Lura (sp?) Lopez who I believe was from El Rito (according to the 1880 census which indicates that she was also 30 and so would have been born in 1850) He was born in March, 1840 according to the census. One record that I found states that she was born in May,1843 in El Rito but there is also a Maria Manuela Lopez from Vallecitos born in 1844 so I'm not sure if they might not be one in the same and there was a mistake somewhere along the way. In any case, Lucas Trujillo and Maria M Lopez were married in 1858 in El Rito. I'd like to find out when they passed away, who their parents were and in Maria's case...where they were from.
Does anyone have any info on this branch of my family? I'd appreciate your help! email
