1860 Trujillos

We’ve seen where Crespin Torres lived in 1860 (See June 10 post). The census shows him in the Socorro household of Pedro and Guadalupe Baca. At that time, June 1860, he’s almost a decade away from marrying Maria Andrea. So where was his bride-to-be? Not far away (just two pages away in the census ledger) in the household of her parents, José Trujillo and Dolores Marquez. José is a blacksmith, age 45. His wife is 34. The children are: Julian, 13; Atanacio, 10; Maria Andrea, 7; Manuel, 4; and Victoriano, age 1.

Note: Juan Julian, sometimes known as J. Julian and sometimes as Julian J., became a lawyer. He served in the U.S. Army Company B, 1st New Mexico Volunteer Cavalry in 1864 and 1865, according to a pension application copied here. Click to enlarge.

And Andrea’s brother Atanacio, pictured at right, became a blacksmith.

Robert Baca has more about the Trujillo line on his blog. The family can be found in the region as early as the 1790 Spanish census.
