I'm trying to find the death record for John Allen in Santa Fe, NM. I know he died in Santa Fe County, Santa Fe, NM but I don't know
when. I also want to know where he is buried. Marie Moceri email

I am looking for any information about my Mother's first cousin, Walter Campbell, who was a Western writer who wrote under the name of Stanley Vestal. He lived in Santa Fe in the late
1930s until, I believe the 1950s. He had a Creative Writing Course at the Universaity of Oklahoma, at Norman, Oklahoma; but it is the location of his house in Santa Fe that interests me. I understand that it was the last Homestead, the Patent of which was signed by F.D.R. in 1937. It was located some eight miles from Santa Fe. called Bird Hill, originally Cerro Pajarito, according to  records that I have. It was full of wonderful boulders, pine trees, and had a great view. I believe to the
south east of Santa Fe. Any information would be very gratefully appreciated. email

 I am researching my family tree and have documented and  traced back to Gregorio Crespin b.abt. 1707 who married Maria Rosalia Blea in
1794. Gregorio was living in Santa Fe all of his life. The problem I am facing is documenting Gregorios parents. Fray Angilico Chavez (1910-1996), Origins of New Mexico Families in the Spanish Colonial Period, Jose Esquibel's Book, The Royal Road and others state that Cristobal Crespin is likely his father, however when researching Cristobals family line I see that his family (according to the LDS records) is the son of Miguel de la Cruz de Lara and Juana de Ancizo from Zacatecas Mexico but the surnames do not match. I am finding conflicting information from this era as to whether:
1 - is Cristobal Crespin the father of Gregorio Crespin and if so, who was the mother  and where can I find documentation of this - and -
2 - was Cristobal  Crespin actually Cristobal de la Cruz Crespin (as Joseph Crespin son of  Gregorio Crespin was listed in baptismal and census records as Jose de la Cruz Crespin as well as Jose and Josef Crespin) since the parents were Miguel de la Cruz de Lara and Juana de Ancizo?

I am searching for the parents of my 3rd. great grandfather. His name was Bernardino Martin Maese AKA Bernardino de sena Martin Maese.

Trying to locate any possible information about my Great-Grandfather, Patrick O'Beirne. Patrick and his wife, Mary (Healy) were residents in Sante Fe for at least 10 years, maybe longer. My best guess would be from at least 1883 through 1895. They had 3 of their 4 children in Santa Fe. Patrick was originally from Ireland and came to the US in about 1865. Met and married Mary in Rawlins, Wyoming. I don't know how long they lived there but I do know their oldest child, Margaret was born in 1883 in Santa Fe. The other 2 children were Charles and John. The only hard evidence I have is a copy of John's marriage papers stating he took his religious training at St. Annes. Patrick eventually worked for the railroads but understand he also did some mining work. They were all Catholic so there should be records of baptisms and perhaps some other age appropriate sacraments on record. Could anyone advise on what other resources I might try? Any/all advice would be welcome. Please email me at  email Thank you, Patty O'Beirne

The ORTIZ history that I am interested in started with the Re-colonization ~ 1695 (de Vargas Expedition?) and family settled around Sante Fe and then moved North to Costilla, NM (Taos County).  I am trying to make the link between Alejo ORTIZ (Son of Blas Antonion ORTIZ) and my Grand father Eloy ORTIZ and his father Juan ORTIZ.

Her family lived in Hatch/Rincon/Derry.
It is not yet known whether or not Basilia and Guadalupe were related. Basilias parents were Victoriano APODACA, born about 1876 and Felisita LOBATO, born about 1880.

MONTOYA / NEPOMUCENO / TRUJILLO / BACA Re: 106 year old Citizen
Juan Montoya was born in November, 1803. He died in either 1909 or 1910. Cañada Alamosa, New Mexico (Monticello since 1881) was his home for much of his life. On 8 June 1839, in Socorro, he married María Leonarda Trujillo, born 12 April 1826 in Socorro, daughter of José Desiderio Maríano Trujillo and Juana Rita Baca. Juan and María Montoya had the following children:
Juan Nepomuceno, born in 1842, Donaciano, born in 1844, Sotero, born in 1858.
Certainly Juan Montoya has to be one of New Mexico's longest living citizens. He is my wife's great, great grandfather, but we are trying to find out who his parents and siblings were. We believe he may have come from either Tomé or Isleta. Please contact me if you have any information about Juan Montoya. Muchas Gracías!

 Taos County Queries To Top of Page

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.

I'm looking on information on Pablo Antonio GRIEGO, and his second wife, Maria Soledad CRUZ - my g-g-g-grandparents.  They were married on 08 March, 1841.  I believe they lived in Taos (perhaps Talpa or Ranchos).  I have the date of Pablo's birth (27 January, 1786).  I would like a list of their children, Soledad's birth and death info, and Pablo's death info, if possible! If it helps in identifying him, Pablo's first wife was Maria Petrona GARCIA. Also, I'd love to have anything on Pablo's parents.  All I know is their names:  Nicolas GRIEGO and Maria Rosa Antonia DOMINGUES. If there is anything on Soledad's parents, that would be wonderful, as well.
Thanks so much. Karen email

I'm researching the Williams/Starkweather ancestors.  Near as I can surmise Charles Williams was born Henry Rueben Starkweather in 1822 in New York.  Their was a name change from Henry Rueben Starkweather to Charles Williams.  He migrated to Taos NM sometime around 1840s and married Guillerma Lefebvre in Taos NM.  Guillerma's parents were Maria De La Luz Martin (ez) and Manuel Lefebvre.  Her father (Manuel) came from Missouri and her mother Maria was from NM.   Charles Williams and Guillerma Lefebvre had children Margarita, Mary Jane, Charles Asa and Maria Isabel.   Charles (originally fron NY) and Guillerma both lived their lives in Ocate, Mora NM.  I am hoping to find clues as to  why the name change from Henry Rueben Starkweather to Charles Williams.  Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.    email
