I would like to find out more information on my great-grandfather BARELA who was an early farm owner in Las Cruces, New Mexico. His name was JESUS BARELA his wife was Florencia BARELA.

My great grandfather Leandro Telles b. 1856 in Santo Tomas, NM and d. 1939 in Jerome, AZ, and buried at San Miguel Cemetery in San Miguel, NM was married to Leandra Rojas b. 1858 in Santo Tomas, NM and d. 1925 in San Miguel, NM. I have been able to track both of them through a marriage record dated 7 Jan 1878 At San Albino Catholic Church and the 1880, 1900, 1910, 1920 and 1930 census reports. I have a death certificate for each of them and my great-grandmother cites Santos Rojas and Martina Garcia as her parents, which I've been able to confirm with an 1860 and 1870 census. Leandro on the other hand identifies his parents as Pedro Telles and Luz Pedraza, however, I've been told that he is the brother of Felicita Delfin. I located the Delfin family on the 1870 census and it lists 6 children that includes Felicita and Leandro. Leandro is 12 and lives 2 houses away from Leandra who is 10. I have been able to locate a christening record and a marriage record for! every child except Leandro. Every christening record states that the parents were Juan Delfin and Luz Pedraza. I am trying to confirm if
Leandro Telles and Leandro Delfin are one and the same. I've included the Trujillo name because Felicita eventually married Alejandro Trujillo
in San Miguel and both of them lived and died there so perhaps this information might ring a bell with someone. What throws off my
information is that I have a picture signed by Pedro Telles in 1876 and I have a picture addressed to Leandro from his brother Hijinio Telles dated 1905. Luz Pedraza lived to 108 and went back and forth with the Pedraza and Delfin name and was never recorded as a Telles. Al Lowe email

I'm researching the Martinez Family.  My grandfater Cesario Dominguez Martinez was born in Hatch, New Mexico on August 27, 1886.  He died on July 2, 1957.  He is buried in the Garden of Memories Cemetery in Hatch, New Mexico.  Cesario was born to Pedro Martinez and Juanita Dominguez (1839 and died on February 28, 1931); Pedro was born to Isidro Martinez and Monica (I don’t have a maiden name for Monica).  I believe Pedro and Juanita are buried in the Rodey (El Colorado) Cemetery of the former San Francisco the Sales Parish. Very little is known to me of the Martinez family that preceded
Cesario.  Pedro, his father,(1827 and died on September 30, 1929) had several brothers and at least one sister living in the Hatch area so I can safely state that the family was here while New Mexico was still a territory and long before New Mexico became a state in 1912.   My paternal grandmother was Maria Rafaela Chavez Martinez.  She was born in Hillsboro, New Mexico on March 9, 1894.  She died on March 2, 1976.  She
is buried in the Garden of Memories Cemetery in Hatch, New Mexico. Rafaela was born to Melquiades Martinez and Beatriz Chavez from Hillsboro, NM. .   Any information would be appreciated. .email
