Hi Karla,

I went to the cemetary here in Portales, New Mexico and took digital photos of the graves of William Edward Jergins. Buried beside him is a Emma Z. Jergins. Somewhere in my genealogical research I remember hearing that he was married or something to a Zahn or Zuhn, hence the Z. What got to me though was the dates on her headstone, they are 1888-1866. Could that have been a 1966? Do you have any info on her? William Edward Jergins was born 1-1-1872 and he died 4-11-1930 and is buried here in Portales, N.M.. On his daughters burial papers from the mortuary it has her buried beside him, which is true. Mary Lee Gertrude Jergins (Weldy)(Howard). George Weldy, her first husband is buried beside her and to his left (my right) is Mrs. Della Mahaffey who was Mary Lee's sister. I remember meeting her as a child. The burial records also list a Mrs. Frieda from California as her sister and one brother Paul Jergins from Florida. In the notes from the funeral home it also says that William Edward worked for a R.G. Briant here in Portales, New Mexico. I will be looking for info on this employer.

Susan Marie Phillips (Jergins) is supposedly buried in Avis, New Mexico. Her date of death that I have is 12-12-1905. My dad put in the info he gave me that William Edward Jergins owned and operated a sawmill and a flour mill in James Canyon near Cloudcroft, New Mexico.

I have from my info the father of W.E.J. as Charles Edward Jergins b. 11-27-1848 d. 7-08-1906. That is all I have on him. No places of birth or death and no spouse listed.

If anyone has any info to the contrary please let me know at . Any other info would be greatly appreciated. If anyone wants photos via email let me know and I will get them to you.
