    Old Church on Highway 12

    I need help in identifing an old Church on Highway 12. The Church was built around 1874
    and is by Tijeras. Tijeras (Tijeras #2, Tijeras #1 is northwest of the #2 on a hill!)Cemetery is on the north of highway 12 and the Church is on the south side. I have an old photo and a newer one the I took while visiting the area.
    The Church is mentioned in an Obiturary of my Great-Grandfather who is buried in a Cemetery northwest of #2 Tijeras and is also called Tijeras Cemetery, which is not visible from the highway. They mention it as the Church at Tijeras.
    Does anyone know the name of this Church? I have a picture that I can e-mail to anyone that is interested!

    Thanks, Manuel
