    Apolonio Vigil


    This is the only picture I have of my great grandfather, Apolonio Vigil (sitting 2nd from the right in the front row.)
    Apolonio was a sheriff, I don‚€™t know of which town. Does anyone know any information about this picture or of any person in it? It seems to be some kind of law enforcement event.
    I am trying to find any information on him. The following is all that I have at this time:

    Apolonio was born Feb. 1860 in New Mexico to Serefin Vigil (who died 27 Mar.1912 in Las Tijeras, Las Animas, CO at about age 95 yrs.) and Maria Benigna Armenta.
    Serefin and Benigna had the following children:
    1.Maria Francisca Vigil-born abt. 1853, Rio Arriba, New Mexico
    2.Jose Manuel Vigil-born 1854, New Mexico,-married in 1858 to Josefa Grine.
    3.Jose Cresencio Vigil-born 29 Dec. 1856, New Mexico-married 1882 to Maria Fernanda Medina.
    4.Cleofas Vigil-born 1858, New Mex.-married to Francisco Garcia 1 Apr 1888.
    5.Apolonio Vigil-born 1860, New Mex.-married 2 Jan. 1881 to Maria Pazita Montoya.
    6.Eutimio Vigil-born 1861, New Mex.-married 14 Oct.1893 to Leonarda Trujillo ( in Segundo, Las Animas, CO)
    7.Eufricio Vigil-born 1869, New Mexico.

    Apolonio and his first wife Pazita Montoya (born Dec. 1865 in New Mex., death 1905 Segundo,CO) had nine children:
    1. Jose Crescencio Vigil-born 23 Oct. 1881, in Trinidad, died as child.
    2. Maria Raquel Vigil-born 15 Feb 1884 in Trinidad, died as child.
    3. Theodosia Vigil- born 9 July 1886 in Las Tijeras, Las Animas, CO, died 3 Dec. 1960 Denver-married Lazaro G. Martinez, Feb 1903.
    4. Abelino Vigil-born 18 May 1891, Las Tijeras, CO-died 3 June 1900.
    5. Jose Alejandro Vigil-born 11 Sept 1893 in Las Tijeras- died 1 June 1900.
    6. Raquel Vigil-born 28 Mar. 1896 in Las Tijeras-died 30 May 1900.
    7. Maria Miclovia Vigil- born 1900 in Las Tijeras.
    8. Adella Vigil (my Grandmother) was born 28 Apr. 1903 in Segundo- died 14 Jan 1998 in Salt Lake City, UT-married Baldazar Trujillo 22 Jul 1922 in Segundo, CO.
    9. Mary Maxmenia Vigil- born 31 May 1905 in Segundo, Las Animas, CO-died 7 Apr. 1997, Denver, CO -married 1920 to Joseph Lacrue.

    Apolonio had a second wife named Juanita.

    Any information on any of these lines would be appreciated; especially on my great grand father Apolonio.
    Thanks,
    Leslie Sermon

    The picture is fantastic and thank you so much for sharing it with us. I think one of our forum members, Manuel Flores, might be able to help you as I believe he has done research on the Lacrue line.

    In the 1900 census Apolonio Vigil is shown living in Tijeras; Occupation: Deputy Sheriff. More than likely Tijeras is the town that he served as Deputy Sheriff.

    I have in my database the couple -- Serafino Vigil and Benigna Armenta -- and this record about Clephas Vigil. In this record, CLEOPHAS is a female marrying Antonio Domingo Zehna.

    Leslie, I have Apolonio's obituary, From The Chronicle News, Trinidad, Colo., he passed away 13 June 1927 in Pueblo, Colorado and is Buried at Tijeras Cemetery. I visit Tijeras cemetery very often since my Grandmother is buried there and I have never saw a headstone for him, he could of had one of the metal-glass enclosed name plates, but time damages them beyond reconigtion. His daughter Maxmenia as you know married Jose Eulogio LaCrue, here is the Obit and wedding photo!




    Photo copy of Wedding Picture: Maria Maxmenia Vigil and Jose Eulogio LaCrue
    Dated: November 1920
    I have most of the info you posted. I can still try to help you more if you give me info on what you want!
    Do you mind me printing the picture you posted so I can send a copy to their Children, Benjamin LaCrue and Rose LaCrue-Valdez?
    Thanks for sharing the Picture of Apolonio.

    In case any one is interested in the above information
    from Manuel, it is in his book on page 53.
    The book is the "La Crue/La Croix family of Las Animas County CO.". This is a wonderful book. A lot of beautiful pictures included.
    If you are related to this family, this book is a must have.
    Good work Manuel.

    Maria Pazita Montoya aka Maria Pace Montoya > Juan Montoya > Manuel Vicente (de los Dolores) Montoya, etc.

    To Dodie, glcordova, mflores, and PAMM, thankyou for all your helpful information! This is my first time using your web site and I think it is great! The picture I posted of Apolonio Vigil is free to be printed.
    I am also trying to go back farther on Serefin Vigil's line if anyone has anything more on him. I am also trying to find more info. on my father's Trujillo line:
    My Grandfather was Baldazar Trujillo married to Adella Vigil.
    His father was Joseph Laurentis Trujillo(B.1871)married to Ma. Emilia Pacheco.
    Laurentis' father was Francisco Trujillo(B.abt.1835)married to Ma. Eulogia Sisneros in 1870.
    This is all I have on the Trujillo line. They have been elusive to me.
    Thanks again! Leslie

    Manuel,Thankyou so much for that last info. It really helps. Here is all I Have on my Father's Trujillo line.

    Baldazar Trello(Trujillo)-b.3 Oct 1901 in Weston, Las Animas, CO.
    married: 22 Jul 1922 to Adella Vigil. Died 11 Jan 1945, Denver, Denver, CO.He was injured 2 Jan 1945 when he was crushed by a slag car at the Griffin Wheel company plant.
    Mother is Maria Emilia or Eva Pacheco-B 11 May 1872 in Weston, Las Animas, CO. Died 11 Feb. 1963. Her Father is Joseph Pacheco and mother is Maria Victoria Mes.
    Father- Joseph Laurentis Trujillo- b.Aug. 1871 in Trinidad, Las Animas, CO. Married 12 Nov. 1897. Died 8 Nov. 1939 in Denver,CO.
    J. Laurentis father is Francisco Trujillo- b 1835, married 2 Dec 1870 to Maria Eulogia Sisneros. Are you familiar with any of these names? I have not been able to get back any farther except that I know Francisco Trujillo was named after his father. I am not sure where to look for him, location wise. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks,Leslie[8)]
