Carlos Benavidez

  • Birth unknown
  • Death 29 Feb 1960
  • Burial Las Vegas, San Miguel County, New Mexico, USA
  • Plot cemetery A row 4 plot 13
  • Memorial ID 15849047

This burial was transcribed from documents provided by The Mental Health Association of New Mexico. That organization is heroically attempting to restore the NM State hospital Cemetery grounds which was destroyed by abandonment by the hospital to the BLM. The BLM then allowed cattle to roam the cemetery area. At one time in history, a mechanical weed hog ripped the headstones into pieces. What remains is of the New Mexico State Hospital Cemetery, now called the Las Vegas Medical Center, is a disgrace.
