Dying Young - and Old

  • Andreita (Montoya) Torres' daughter Manuelita (Marquez) Baca died 11-3-1941 at age 40. Meanwhile, Manuelita’s grandmother on the Marquez side lived to be 105! Juana (Lucero) Marquez’ death certificate is dated 2-27-1933. As for Andreita? She didn’t match her first mother-in-law, but she made it to age 90. She died 7-9-1974.
  • Rogerio Torres, youngest son of Crespin and Andreita, also died young. He was 46 when he died 11-26-1934. Pneumonia was the cause of death for the man who had lost a leg in an accident earlier in life.
  • Crespin Torres was just four days away from his 90th birthday when he died 11-21-1937.

    Anybody know some others who enjoyed a long and fruitful life? Or those who expired much too soon?
