I have been researching Juan de Dios Vigil and Maria Encarnacion Marquez for Yvette's uncles. I knew that they were the parents of Francisquita Vigil de Montoya and that she had two sisters. Maria Sara and Maria Sofia. Last night I found out that there were two brothers and another sister (who died as an infant). The brothers were Jose Ramon who married Maria Esquipula LeBlanc in Antonito, CO on 7 Jan 1889. The other brother was Tomas Vigil who was married twice. 1. Maria Anastacia Sena, 10 Oct 1892. 2. Adelina Chavez, 16 Feb 1920. Maria Lugarda born in Jan 1977 died on 12 March 1977. I now gather that Sara and Sofia were daughters of Juan de Dios Vigil and Bibiana Valdez. Does anyone know the marriage date of Juan Vigil and Bibiana Valdez? Also birthdates for Sara and Sofia. I have the names of some of the spouses of the other children of Simeon Turley and Maria Rosa Romero. A little lesson here: it should be Maria Rosa Romero de Vigil. That shows that her maiden name was Romero and married to a Vigil. When you show it as Maria Rosa Romero y Vigil, they you are saying that her father's surname was Romero and her mother's surname Vigil. I would like to here from anyone posting on this web.

Hi Yvette,
My name is Diane Ortiz I live in Denver Colorado. My Grandmother whose birth name is Sarah Vigil and she was born in Capulin Colorado. A very small town in the San Luis Valley in Colorado. My grandmother is a decendant of Simeon Turley. I believe he was her great grandfather making us (me and my cousins) our third great grandfather also. My grandmother, Sarah married Eduardo Ortiz and they had 10 children which have all moved to Denver many years ago. I was told by my father that we were related to Turleys that lived in Taos NM but I didn't look into it until recently. I read the book The Taos Massacres and it left me wondering what happened to Simeon's family that were left behind after he was killed knowing that we came from them so I decided to look him up and I found this website that my cousin Darlene had responded to. I am amazed that Simeon has decendants in so many parts of the country. My grandmother's parents were Juan Vigil and Bibiana Valdez and she was born in 1894. I don't know how it was that they ended up in Colorado although the valley is not far from New Mexico. If you have any information about the children Simeon left behind I would be interested in learning more about our history. It is nice to meet you Yvette I hope we can keep in touch. Diane

Hi Darlene;Saw your photo of the family,IRISH have'nt seen that before.Thank you for posting it,Jason' going to be very happy.He's at work right now.Oh I'm Virginia Diane Bennett maiden name Davis.I was married to Paul, Cecelia and Alfonso Valdez son.We had one son Jason Paul Valdez,later my 2nd husband adopted him,and we named him Jason Edward Bennett.Which he does'nt like,he wants his name back to Valdez.The things you do when your young,IN was stupid to do that.There was no reason for me to do that, I did it because I was mad.That was going to far.Grandma and grandpa and paul probably are'nt very happy either.He went with his family this last Christmas to visit Colorado.Thank you so much for posting the photo of Marquez family.I met Sofia in 1976-77 in Denver at Cecelia' house.She talked to me and smiled with such a warm friendly smile.The entire family was always so nice to me,they treated me as a daughter.I could'nt have been more lucky then to have them as family.Paul and IS were to young to have been married.I was extremely inmature.The lady in the white dress is that cecelia?Were they at a wedding?Hope to hear from you.

Hi there, goodness it has been such a long time. We will be in Santa Fe from July 14 for 5 or 6 days, any chance you will be in N.M. then too? That would be so cool. Love to all
