    Borrego family history

    Trying to find out whether a man named Felix Valentin Borrego lived in Trinidad in the mid 1900s, 50s, 60s, or so. Is there a phone book archive of that time period for Trinidad?

    Re: Borrego family history

    Hi,

    I couldn't find a directory from that period. Do you have some additional information for Felix that might help with the search? I did find a Felix Borrego in Boulder who was born in about 1904. I also found Felix Borrego with a Colorado WWI Draft Registration who was born in 1894, here is his is death index information:

    Name: Felix Borrego
    Last Residence: 81082 Trinidad, Las Animas County, Colorado, USA
    Born: 12 Nov 1894
    Died: Mar 1977
    State/Year SSN Issued: Colorado (Before 1951)

    Looking for connections to Borrego family who were associated with Claudio Mason Garcia b abt 1874 Calfornia, Esperidion Garcia b1842 Sonora Mexico, Juan Narciso Lucero b abt 1844-1859 Rio Arriba, New Mexico Territory, Maria Candelaria Cisneros b1856 Rio Arriba, Maria Adelaida Cisneros b abt 1858 Rio Arriba, Carlos Antonio Espinosa b 1881 Colton, San Bernardino Co, California. Families lived in southern Colorado region around 1900-1915, later moving to Los Angeles area where they raised families & later died.

    Claudio Mason Garcia & Carlos Antonio Espinosa came to Colorado abt 1900 to work for Santa Fe Railroad - Claudio was a RR boss, hiring & firing. Carlos settled in Rocky Ford/La Junta area.

    Family members say "Dick" Borrego would know about Narciso Lucero and or Adelaida Cisneros as there were many family kin connections.

    Any info appreciated. Mary Anne
