First Communion - First Cousins

Here are separate pictures of two girls at the time of their First Communions in Socorro, taken not that many years apart. If the photos were made around age 7, a typical age for First Communion, the dates of the photos would be 1914 and 1919.

The girls are first cousins.

  • At left is Monica Sanchez (born 1907), the daughter of Domitila and Moises Sanchez. Her family moved to California when she was a teenager, and she married Ben Lubbon.

  • At right is Teresita Torres (born 1912), daughter of Ignacio and Andreita Torres. She married Robert Baca and lived her life in Socorro.
