Vicente Quintana No relations, but we were all family. Vicente and Frank were our next door neighbors while I was growing up in Santa Fe. We moved to Calif in 1967 so I don't know much about them after that. I have them in my genealogy data base. I knew that your grandmother's name was Emilia but that was it. If you wouldn't mind sharing more info, please contact me at my e-mail address.
Picuris Pueblo I am assisting another researcher in his quest to find the grave of Filbert Martinez. Filbert is a US Army Vet, KIA, Germany, 9/16/1944. His remains were returned to the US and according to an Obit, buried in San Lorenzo Pueblo. I suspect this is the San Lorenzo Church Cemetery on Picuris Pueblo, south of Taos, NM.
As a contributor to Findagrave.com I find it odd that no one has surveyed this cemetery and submitted memorials for those interred. It could be due to the fees collected for touring and photographing. It also could be due to tribal customs regarding their deceased.
Questions: Do you have information on the location of the cemetery and its accessibility to the public? Are the Picuris Cemetery and the San Lorenzo Cemetery one and the same? Ross, NM
Maria Viviana Sandoval Maria Viviana Sandoval..Memorial # 93630207. I had requested a picture of the gravemarker back on Jul 30, 2013 but never got a response. Since you were the original photographer/creator, I wonder if you would please check your archives and e-mail me a photo of the gravemarkers. Thanking you in advance, Karen B. Sanchez email@example.com
RE: Paul Thank you Paul for your quick reply. Your explanation about burials in 1500 and 1600 was helpful. I have been reading several historical books about Nuevo Mejico and Nueva Espana. Fasinating! My father's family goes all the way back to Spain. I really appreciate your contributions to "Find A Grave". Please continue this work, as it is invaluable to people like me who can't travel and take our own photos! Adrienne
