Project is based on the cemetery surveys published in the New Mexico Genealogist, The Journal of the New Mexico Genealogical Society. P.O. Box 8283; Albuquerque, NM 87198-8283. The magazine's volume, date, and and page number is displayed under the cemetery's name. Our appreciation to the New Mexico Genealogical Society and the survey compliers. Our thanks to Dorothy Webb for typing this record. La Manga Cemetery is located in the churchyard at La Manga Catholic Church, 1/5 of a mile west of Highway 85, seven miles south of Las Vegas. There are approximately 90 graves in the cemetery, many with unreadable sandstone markers, old wooden crosses, and old mortuary markers, many probably from Rogers Mortuary in Las Vegas. Copied 24 Sep 1977, by Jean Whiting and Helen Hennon.
