Below is information that I transcribed from the monograph "A Cultural Resource Investigation of Two Historic Sites in Lemitar, New Mexico" by Don Scurlock. Bureau of Land Management, Socorro, NM, 1982. Library of Congress Call # F 804 L46 S29 1982.

"Luz Chavez identified individuals interred in the Camposanto Viejo cemetery from her family records. They are, with date of death:Medardo Chavez (1883), Fabriciana Gonzales (1887), Maria F. Chavez 1891), Felix Chavez(1891), Maria de los Reyes Chavez (1895), Adela Chavez Chavez (1896.")
