    *This info is from the 1900 US Census and mostly verified by my grandfather.

    According to my grandfather, Jose was a farmer, his family lived in Tujillo Creek and Delagua and Aguilar.

    I am looking for the following...

    I was reading in Dodie's reply the names Estanislado Vallejos and Maria Duran. Those names are also in my family history.
    Estanislado Vallejos was half-brother to my great-grandfather Lazaro Vallejos. Here is what I have recorded:

    Estanislado Vallejos b. 186d d. 1902
    Married: Maria Duran
    1. Pauline Vallejos
    2. Getrudis Vallejos
    3. Mucio Vallejos

    For others interested, I have Estanislado's sibling information to include spouse and known children.

    Obituary notice for Estanislado Vallejos - THROWN FROM HORSE, AND DIED FROM EFFECTS - Stanislaus Vallejos of Cucharas, aged about 40 years died at the home of his parents on Saturday night. He was for years well known to this community. On Friday last he was training a bronco for a neighbor. He put the spurs to the animal when it began to buck and fell throwing Vallejos, a tall, heavy man, to the ground head foremost. He was picked up unconscious and the report was current all day Saturday that he had broken his neck and was dying. But Dr. Mathew, who attended him said his neck was not broken but that his skull was badly fractured. He never recovered consciousness from the time he was thrown till he died. A strange fatility seems to pursue the sons of this family. In 1898 Jacobo Vallejos, a brother, and popular young fellow, while acting as salesman and cashier in Mr. Stevens' store at Cucharas was murdered by thieves late at night. Dick Manley, who had killed a man at the same place some years before, just before his death a few years ago, confessed that he had killed Jacobo. A little more than two years ago Mucio Vallejos, another brother, was killed in a fracas at a Mexican dance by another Mexican, also near the plaza of Cucharas. Juan, who was at one time County Assessor, and who was nominated last year by the democrats for Sheriff, is the only survivor. THE WALSENBURG WORLD NEWSPAPER dated Thursday, March 06, 1902; front page.

    Re: Jose De La Luz Martinez & Leandrita Duran-Martinez

    It is highly possible that I replied before (I am in my dotage) but Jose and Leandra had two other children that I know of, my mother Margaret, born in 1908 or 1910, and her younger brother Felix, and I have no clue as to his date of birth, I find it hard to believe that they had children at such a late date.
    I have dim memories but I do remember my grandmother Leandrita or Leandra, she was a very mean woman.
