I was born in Barcelona in 1946.
No one else around from there?
If anyone has pictures of that village please post them!
I was born and raised there till 1959 when Kennecott close the village down.
I remember huge chunks of earth break apart from the edge pf the village facing Ray. The open pit seperated Ray from Barcelona. Felt like an earthquake.
When balsting was being done we had rocks rain on our roof. Before the balst we could hear the siren go off for a long time giving everyone a chance to take cover.

Mr Hinojos, My mom remembers your parents. Her name is Mary Louise Quiroz and is known more by her
nickname of Licha. MOm was born in phoenix in 1921 but has lived first in Sonora (until 1965) and has since resided in Kearny. My nana pina came to Sonora in 1907 or so and was married there in 1916.
I also was born in 1951. I just turned 60 last weekend. I went to Washington elementary and kearny middle school and graduated from RDHS in 1969. I have lived in Tempe for the past 35 years and my family still lives up in Kearny.
the sonorense disbanded a few years back, but there are still many sonorans who can answer many of you questions. there is a ray sonora barcelona blog as you know and in Tucson there are many of our former gente who may be able to help you out.
One person i can think of is Ronnie horner. I dont
have a number for her, but i'm sure she is in the book.
I have asked a few old sonorans if i may have some
of their old pics of barcelona and of sonora. When i get some i'll let you know. I'm looking forward to that day.
thank you,
thomas quiroz
