2 Young Mothers
These two mothers died around the turn of the century – last century, that is.
Monica (Torres) Montoya, left, was born in 1872 and married in 1887 in Socorro. She died before 1902, leaving behind her husband, David, and young son, Juan José. Monica was the second daughter of Crespin and Andrea Torres. Marcelina (Sanchez) Luna was born in 1885 and married in 1902 in Socorro. She died before the 1910 census, leaving behind husband, Francisco, and young daughter Andreita. Marcelina is the oldest daughter of Domitila and Moises Sanchez.
