RE: Tom Taylor

How are you doing? I was wondering if you've had a chance to find anything on my character, Tom/James/Billy Taylor/Mason/Fox?

RE: Tom Taylor

Touching bases. I've been trying to find out more about the bank robbery at San Marcial, more than what the papers say, but I'm not having much luck touching bases with the local historical societies. The Socorro County Historical Society offers only a phone number contact, and I'd rather e-mail someone. At this point, I think I'd like to see if there was a police report, since, the pursuing deputy sheriff, and in one article the sheriff of the county himself, escorted the body back to San Marcial for identification and burial. There doesn't appear to be a contact at the Socorro Sheriff's Department for such information, as to where those old records might be.

All Help Sincerely Appreciated.

RE: Tom Taylor
Checked out your links. Very informative, and it would suggest to me that the bank robbery in 1892 must have been the one referenced by Kid Thompson and the New Mexico lawman. In the 1894 Arizona and California newspapers, they're spelling San Pascual, 'San Pasquel', as in the battlefield in San Diego, so my searches in the past may have been for nothing. Now, have you every heard of someone named Bradley who would have identified himself as a 'retired New Mexico deputy sheriff', circa 1895?

If you ever need any footwork in San Diego County, California, I'm at your disposal.

There is no rush for the cemetery. I've been hunting this man for three years, and he's been resting in San Marcial for a hundred and twenty three. No pressure.

Thank you for the links. I will check them out now. My e-mail addy is

RE: Tom Taylor
While I'm talking with you, was San Marcial ever called San Pasquel? Is there anywhere near San Marcial that is or was called San Pasquel?

I'm looking for more information on a desperado who held up Jasper Broyles store, November 22nd, 1892, which was in San Marcial. The store is also referred to as a 'private bank', and the thief made off with somewhere between $1,000.00 to $1,200.00 in gold coin. One account has it at $5,000.00. The desperado was confronted in Snowflake, Arizona, and in the ensuing shoot-out, Charles Flake and the robber were killed. The thief was 'rich in aliases', here's a partial list: First names: Billy, Tim, Tom, James, Jim, David. Last names: Taylor, Mason, Morgan, Fox. Deputy Sheriff Goodwyn, or maybe Nat Grier, both names appear in the papers of the times, returned the body to San Marcial, I assume for identification, which Broyles did. The thief, identified as James Taylor in the Le Mars Semi-Weekly Sentinel Dec. 16, 1892, was buried in San Marcial. I would love a photo of his grave, but local lore or more information on the robbery, and subsequent hunt also would be greatly appreciated. David Taylor

RE: San Marcial Cemetery
I went one day, and there was what seemed only two ways to get there, one through private property, and a locked gate, and one down a very sandy road, long road...perhaps you know more? I would greatly appreciate any help, yes :)

Good morning
You will do great. This is a very good site and you can search for your family and add memorials for them. When you look at the pictures and read their biographies it brings them alive to people that never knew them. Fascinating.

No not at all. The picture of you Grandma is beautiful. I prefer families take care of the memorials so I have transferred Mrs. Clary to you.

God Bless You,
