The Daily New Mexican Ocotober 10, 1876

Contributed by

   I will be posting the four pages of the October 10, 1876 "The Daily New Mexican." Two and a half pages are in English and one and a half in Spanish. The newspaper was published by "The Daily New Mexican. Published daily except Sunday by Manderfield and Tucker, Proprietors and Editors." Page one featurs the funeral of my great grandfather's brother, Sigmund Seligman. He died at Fort Craig from an apparent stroke. He dies on October 4, 1876. He was forty six years old. The paper states he was buried at the "Odd Fellows Cemetery. Anybody know this location?'

   Also on page one is an ad for Z. Stabb & Bro. which extols "Fast Mule Teams, The latest novelties of fashion and style from the eastern markets, which we shall offer to the trade at lowest prices."

From personal collection.

New Mexico Bureau of Immigration advertisement - 1909

Contributed by

Before Statehood was finally achieved in 1912, the Territory maintained an active Bureau of Immigration whose purpose was to entice United States citizens to emigrate and thus convince Congress that New Mexico could govern herself.  The Bureau was located in Albuquerque and, in 1909, issued this flyer extolling the opportunities available in New Mexico.

Contributed by

This is related to Mike Lord's post whose great-grandparents lived on E. Palace in the early 1900's.  This shows who lived on E. Palace three decades later.  Do you recognize any names?
