Mi Familia - By Consuelo Chavez

Contributed by

The beautiful little girl is Angie Sosaya Biddle. eldest child of Augustin and Victoria Roybal Sosaya. Many of you know Victoria Murphy. Her mother, Monica Sosaya Halford, was their daughter. Victoria Sosaya's older sister was Nicolasa Roybal Chavez, mother of Fray Angelico, Martha, Nora (my mother), Cuate, Adela, Maria Consuelo, Eugenio, FabIan Jr., Antonio and Jose. Jose is the only one of the ten children still living!

The pretty lady to the right in the picture is Victoria. She and their older sister Eva, were the prettiest of the 4 Roybal girls. They were both tall and slender. My grandmother Nicolasa is sitting with her back to the camera. She was barely 4'10" and had a very small frame. The 2nd oldest of the sisters was Aurelia Roybal King. She was married to George King. You got it...he later owned a bar in Santa Fe.

This picture was taken in front if the Roybal house in Wagon Mound in 1915.

Who is that little boy pushing a wheel barrel?  Why that is Fabian and Nicolasa's eldest child....none other than Manuel Ezekiel....aka Fray Angelico Chavez OFM.

El Hermano, a novel by Carmen Baca

Contributed by

I had the privilege of meeting Carmen Baca at Bookworks aqui en 'Burque.  Carmen was discussing her book "El Hermano."  It is a wonderful story about her father's coming of age in the 1920's as a future member of a Cofradia (Penitentes) in northern New Mexico.  The book features some of the folklore that we love in northern New Mexico including our mysterious La Llorona.  You can purchase the book on Amazon and many local bookstores.  Voces de Santa Fe has always been committed to supporting our local artists and authors.  They are instrumental in keeping our culture alive and vibrant.
