Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: May 10, 1875
Pena Blanca
Sandoval County
New Mexico, USA
Death: Jan. 27, 1932
Las Vegas
San Miguel County
New Mexico, USA

Wife of former Governor Ezequiel Cabeza De Baca.

Margarita was the daughter of Nicholas Amado C de Baca and Maria de Jesus Stephens. Margarita's father was a wealthy land owner from Pena Blanca who made his wealth raising sheep. They had a large hacienda with servants and tutors.

Margarita and Ezequiel had 14 children.

Margarita's life with Ezequiel was filled with lavishness, style and politics, yet she was a serious and quiet woman who focused more on raising her children and keeping the household. In fact, it was her daughter and not Margarita who accompanied Ezequiel to the inaugural ball.

After the death of her husband, she and her children, the youngest of whom was nine months old, returned to Las Vegas. The state continued to pay her Ezequiel's wages for the remainder of the year, and with the help of her older children, she was able to support and raise her family.

Throughout the years she remained true to her husband and in fact kept the love letters he had written her when she was sixteen, blond and beautiful. Margarita died at the age of 59 and was buried next to her husband wearing the black and gold gown she had intended to wear for Ezequiel's inauguration.
