The La Cueva Cemetery is located at the intersection of New Mexico Highways #3 and #21 at the community of La Cueva. It is a good-sized cemetery (possibly two) situated on the northeast corner of the intersection. One portion with an entry facing Highway 21 has been enclosed within a rock wall with an overflow on the south adjacent property which is not fenced. The enclosed portion appears to be the older being more run down and the stones are fewer and less sophisticated, while that portion outside shows evidence of more burials, some with polished stone markers.
There was one stone near Jobia M0NTOYA:and Ana Gertrudis FLORENZ which had "age 60 yr 21 Jun 1893" and
another with only the date of 1880.) This listing begins at the rear, western wall toward the northeast corner and working generally in a southeastern direction. 2005
