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@example.com Thank you.

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 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.
