Anyhow, I looked back at the contents of the collection, and realized that there were many other records with Socorro citizens listed on them. The names include: Colonel E. W. Eaton, Juan Jose Baca, Elfego Baca, Dionosio Jarmillo, - Robert Stapleton - just to name a few. The collection even has a public notice from the Socorro Committee on Safety, a vigilante group that terrorized (saved?) Socorro, as well as a list of its members.
Many of the names listed flow in and out of my family's genealogy. I can't wait to find out more about this collection. I think I'll have to go to the library to get some copies.
