Sep., 1881 Mesilla Doņa Ana County New Mexico, USA
Husband of Bensislada (Duran Valencia).
There is a bit of contraversy about the way he died. He was shot. One story has him as a member of a posey looking for some horse thieves. He was shot in the confrontation. They other said that he was on the other side of the law. I am leaning toward the first since the second story came from one of the men that may have been one of the horse theives.
Either way, he left his wife and 7 children between the ages of 5 and 25.
