Crespin Torres' brother Canuto - 1880 census

Once again, here is a screen shot from This is the family of Crespin Torres' brother Canuto Torres.

According to Dr. Eugene Luis Torres' book "In Search of El Torres: Hijos de Reconquistadores" (1994), Canuto was a sargent in the Union army during the Civil War. He was in New Mexico Company E, 2nd Regiment from Valencia County (Captain Ramon Baca's company.) Also from the book, it is noted that Canuto's son Anastacio was a former state representative and senator, teacher, newspaper publisher and editor (of the "El Defensor del Pueblo".)
