New Mexico Death Records of WWII in Taos, NM
Posted by: laura davis (ID *****8694) Date: March 05, 2012 at 01:49:41
  of 1888

Although I was only five when my Mother's first and second cousins visited us in El Paso, Texas prior to their joining the army at Ft.Bliss, I recall the fine day when my Mother's male cousins, adult niece, that niece's teen daughters, my older sister and I climbed Mt.Franklin to Cristo Rey, the mountain side statue. By the following year, the three cousins had died in concentration camps, and my cousin's husband, an engineer from UNM, and his group were ambushed on the landing beach in the Phillipines, I believe. Where would I find the death notices in either Taos or Santa Fe? Incidentally,our family traveled to Taos to attend the funeral of Mother's brother who had returned home from France after being gassed in battle, to die in his own bed, so I don't need that record. Thank you for any help. LD
