I have lived in Southern CO most of my life and have been doing genealogy for several years. I have two patriots from the American Revolution and am a member of NSDAR.I am interested in finding graves for Valdes or Tapia relatives in the Santa Fe or Velarde NM area. Also, Kennedy, Kirkpatrick, Honeyman or Durbin relatives in Iowa, Ohio, MO, CA or VA. My husband has memorials in Trinidad, CO and has others he's looking for in PA and Virginia.|

|truchasnm||RE: Cemetery records|
Unfortunately, most of the cemeteries in this area aren't well documented. That is what I've been attempting to do through findagrave. Obituaries may identify the cemetery and sometimes the Death Certificate may also include the cemetery. Churches may have a record of a funeral, but not necessarily where they were interred. Many graves in the old Santa Cruz Cemetery were wooden and have either rotted or burned when a weed fire went through it, as was the case with my g-grandfather and aunt. In some cases tempoary markers lost their identifying information before a permanent marker could be place. Then there are the painted cement markers which have also eroded. I have some burial records for the Santa Cruz area and less of the surrounding areas. If you can provide me with the names, approximate age and/or year of passing, and maybe even community, maybe I have something that can help you out.

If there's anything I can do to help, let me know.
Velarde's original name was La Joya (Basin). La Joya's name was changed when a post office was established by David Velarde. The serving cemetery is Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Cemetery. Embudo (funnel) was the original name for the village now called Dixon. When the Chili Line Railroad established a stop on its route along the Rio Grande, it was called the Embudo Station for the nearby village. Eventually, the area along the Rio Grande dominated the name Embudo. The original Embudo was renamed Dixon for a teacher in the village. Embudo has the Father Kauper Cemetery established about 1960s. Dixon has 4 identified cemeteries. There is the Dixon Presbyterian Cemetery, San Antonio Catholic Cemetery (old), Saint Anthonys Catholic Cemetery (new), and the Apostolic Cemetery in nearby Apodaca. There is a generic page for Dixon Cemeteries, which has been misused as a catch-all. But, I guess it's better than nothing. There are two more cemeteries that I haven't yet identified, but they don't seem to have findagrave pages for them yet. Hopefully, this summer I can research and coordinate with the findagrave folks to clear up the confusing entries. Sorry, I haven't made it out to Santa Cruz to check on Marcos Quintana. I've been laid up.
|truchasnm||RE: Quintana family|
I'll take a look near Marcos, maybe we'll get lucky.
|truchasnm||RE: Quintana family|
Thank you for your interest. Quintanas are a pet focus for me. If Luis passed away in 1938, he would have been buried in the Santa Cruz Cemetery. Holy Cross began about 1940. Unfortunately, most of the wooden markers in Santa Cruz have rotted or burned. Some graves are simply marked with a stone etched with initials, a cross, or nothing. If there's any tidbit of information that may help me locate the grave, I'll attempt it. I.E. buried next to..., or other sort of landmark data. There are also a few cement markers that are unidentifiable. I would very much like to to be of help, if I can.

Thanks for your contact its fairly easy to add amarker photograph first save the photograph tp your computer under your photographs remember what you saved it as I usually name mine FAG1 just to make it easy, then just go to the memorial page klick on add photographslecet browse and when your list comes up select photographs from their either scroll down till you come to the photograph or easier still type in FAG1 select it then it will show you the photograph when if you wish you can add a dedication etc click add photo and it will appear on the memorial page, only click on it once or you will finish up with two photos if that happens click on one of the photographs not your name and you will get a delete photo section where you just click again and the extra photo will disappear, hope this makes sense if I can help further please ask, you can also add a floral tribute and leave a message by using add flowers,

I'm sorry about not transfering the record faster, but I hope you enjoy having it now.
