A Few Coincidences: The Torres Family


Recently, I’ve been researching a particular Torres family in Socorro. Specifically, the descendants of Agustin Torres and Felipa Baca. Independently of these research needs, I purchased a book titled “Santa BarbaraCemetery: Albuquerque, New Mexico”.  At least I thought it was independent of those needs.
Today I was in the Albuquerque Genealogy Library where I came across the authors of the above-mentioned book. I told Cheril that I had purchased the book, and she went to the shelves and brought out a copy. We began going through it, when I remembered that there was a particular family that I found at the cemetery when I visited it last years.

Getudres Zimmerly, the sister of my great-grandfather Estevan Zimmerly (not to confused with Estevan’s daughter of the same name) was married to Herminio Torres, her first cousin. This couple is buried in the cemetery, although not together. However, Getrudes is buried next to her adult son Ernest Torres. We found the entries for this family in the book, and was I able to give Cheril and her co-author Nancy some more information about this family. I mentioned that I did not know if Ernest had been married or not, and Cheril suggested that I look up his death certificate and obituary on the genealogy library’s LAN system. Well, I found his death certificates and four separate obituaries. I now know his wife’s name was Suzanne, he had a daughter named Edna Lois Torres and that his three sisters were married to M.A. Pino, John F. Ulivari (Ulibarri) and J.R. DeArmond. Although I don’t know which sister goes with which husband, I at least have a few leads for the family.

Below are links to my Evernote captures of the four obituaries and death certificate:

Here is also a short genealogy of the family:

Three indexes on Socorro County Marriages, 1885-1913

On Thursday, I blogged about Family Search's (relatively) new collection of databases on New Mexico County Marriages, 1885-1954 (LINK.) This collection is of marriages recorded in the Sandoval, Socorro and Valencia county courthouses. These are actual images of entries and certificates.

Yesterday, I received a request from a friend asking if I could find a marriage record for her grandparents. She knew her grandparents had been married in Magdalena (Socorro County), but she was unsure of the date. She thought that they may have been married in 1910. I found their marriage record in January 1908. The record did not included their parents names (she already had them), but it did include their birthdates. Now any good genealogist will tell you that a birthdate mentioned in a marriage record is not a primary source - primary sources are created soon after the event occurs, and marriages take place many years after a person's birth - but it is at least a good "clue" to the actual birthdate of a person, if not the actual birthdate itself. I would suggest searching for a baptismal record or a birth certificate (if it exists) for that person to confirm birthdates.

I was able to find this record only because I was able to find a second index in one of the databases. Socorro County Marriages 1885-1913, Vols. 1-3 actually has THREE indexes, as it has three volumes (LINK.) The indexes are somewhat in alphabetical order, as in they are categorized by first letter. However, since they were indexed at the same time that the entries were made, the alphabetical order within the letter groupings is mixed up. It's easy enough to read through, though, as their is usually not more than one letter group per image.

* Volume One - The index is on images 6 through 31. The entries begin on image 32.
* Volume Two - The index is on images 181 through 195. The entries begin immediately on image 195.
* Volume Three - The index is on images 467 through 490. The entries begin on image 491.

It's important to realize that the index are for page numbers and NOT image numbers. The pages are on the top of the images, and there are usually two pages per image. You'll have to browse through the database to find the exact page you are looking for.

Happy Hunting!

New Mexico County Marriages, 1885-1954 - FamilySearch.org

For anyone looking for late 19th Century through mid 20th Century marriage records in Sandoval, Socorro or Valencia Counties, there is a (relatively) new resource online. FamilySearch.org has added a collection "New Mexico, County Marriages, 1885-1954". These databases have images of marriage records from the state archives and county courthouses. It is not a searchable database; you will have to browse through the collection. However, in at least in a few of the databases, there are indexes in the first few images.

List of Socorro County Republican delegates, 1906

Prior to statehood, and a couple of decades afterwards, Republicans held the majority in New Mexico. Most of delegates to the 1911 New Mexico Constitutional Convention were Republican; all of Hispanic delegates were Republican. It wouldn't be until Dennis Chavez was elected to the U.S. Senate, Franklin Roosevelt became president, and the New Deal began to affect New Mexico that the majority of voters in New Mexico switched from Republican to Democrat.

Socorro County, like many counties in New Mexico, was dominated by the Republican Party. Many Hispanics were in the leadership of the Socorro County Republican Party, including my second great-grandfather Jose Epitacio Torres. The 15 September 1906 issue of "The Socorro Chieftain listed Jose E. Torres as the county's Chairman of the Republican Central Committee.

The image below is a list a delegates to the Socorro County Convention. The delegates include the following men:

Jose E. Torres
Lorenzo M. Vigil
Jose E. Montoya
Jose D. Carrillo
Abran Baca
Serafin Lucero
Jose M. Lopez
Rafael Mendoza
Thos.(Thomas) F. Cooney
F. H. Gregg
William Gardiner
A.B. Baca

Chas. (Charles) Eaton

C.T. Brown
Julian Montoya
Edward Tafoya

Alejo (Alejandro) Gurule
C.H. Ehmendorf

Pablo Armijo
Manuel S. Pino
Luciano Tafoya
J.K.P. May
Wm. (William) H. Antrim
Estevan Contreras
B. C. Raynolds
D.B. Sorrels
J. Peralta y Cisneros
Genovevo Padilla
Juan Silva
Donaciano Gabaldon
Jose Baca y Sedillo
Henry Martin
A.A. Sedillo




These delegates were to attend the Socorro convention, and elect 11 delegates who were attend the state convention in Las Vegas, New Mexico, on 29 September.

The results of the Socorro County Republican Convention can be read on the Chronicling America website here (click on link.) The convention favored joint statehood. Joint statehood was an idea of annexing New Mexico and Arizona into the United States as one state. Obviously, that did not happen, but statehood had eluded New Mexicans for over 50 years by this point and many believed that this was the only way that New Mexico could achieve statehood.

World War II Draft Cards for New Mexico Zimmerly cousins

The Fold3 website is currently adding World War II draft cards to their database. I found in this database draft cards for certain Zimmerly cousins. In New Mexico, their appears to be only one Zimmerly family: those who were descendants of Samuel J. Zimmerly, Civil War Union soldier. The men listed below are grandsons or great grandsons of Samuel Zimmerly. You can find them on the Fold3 website in alphabetical order beginning with this link for my great-uncle Albert Zimmerly's draft card. You can toggle through the cards by using the arrows on the site. Each card has a back side which is shown on a separate subsequent image. You may need a subscription to the website to see the complete cards. I have free access to Fold3 through the Albuquerque/Bernalillo County Genealogy Center's website.

If you are unable to view these cards online and you want to see any of them, I can email you a copy of the card. My email address is on this blog.

Albert Zimmerly, Jose Maximiano Zimmerly, and Steve D. Zimmerly were the children of Estevan Zimmerly and Delfina Torres. Estevan Zimmerly was the youngest son of Samuel J. Zimmerly. Estevan was my great-grandfather, and his sons were my great-uncles.

Benito Zimmerly was the son of Juan Jose Zimmerly and Isabel Torres. Juan Jose was the eldest son of Samuel J. Zimmerly.

Benjamin *Franklin* Zimmerly, Charles Ernest Zimmerly, Joseph Louis Zimmerly and the younger Samuel James Zimmerly were all sons of Ricardo Zimmerly and Eloisa Stackpole. Ricardo Zimmerly the middle son of the elder Samuel J. Zimmerly.

Justine (or Justin) Zimmerly was the son of Samuel T. Zimmerly and Juanita Torres. Samuel T. Zimmerly was the son of Juan Jose Zimmerly and Isabel Torres. Therefore, Justine Zimmerly was the nephew of Benito Zimmerly.

There are undoubtedly other descendants of Samuel J. Zimmerly who also filled out draft cards. Samuel Zimmerly had three daughters who had children. However, I wanted to just focus on in this post the Zimmerly surname and not any other surnames of other Zimmerly descendants.

Below are my transcriptions of the Zimmerly draft cards. I recommend that anyone interested in these names do your own research. There may be transcription errors and other information that I did not include that are on the cards. Also, I've noticed some discrepancies on the cards regarding birthdates that don't match information that I have from other sources. Remember, these cards are not considered "primary sources" for birthdates as they were written decades after the person was born.

Obituary Gertrudes (Zimmerly) Torres, wife of Herminio Torres

I found the obituary for Gertrudes (Zimmerly) Torres, the wife of Herminio Torres,  in the 7 September 1920 issue of the Albuquerque Morning Journal. The newspaper erroneously lists her as Gertrudes Torres Zimmerly, which would indicate that her maiden name would have been Torres, rather than Zimmerly. Gertrudes was the daughter of Samuel Zimmerly and Maria Pabla Torres, and a sister of my great-grandfather Estevan Zimmerly.

ZIMMERLY - Mrs. Gertrudes Torres Zimmerly, 48 years old, died yesterday at her home 313 West Hazeldine avenue. She is survived by a son, two daughters and her husband. Funeral arrangements will be made today. The body was taken to Crollott's funeral parlors.

In January and February of 1908, "The Socorro Chieftain" announced the deaths of four children Juan A. Baca and Bonifacia Castillo de Baca.

Socorro County Delayed Birth Records, 1867 - 1885

Over a decade ago I posted to the Socorro County USGenWeb website a list of Delayed Birth Records for specific Socorro County residents born in the county between 1867 - 1885. Delayed Birth Records are types of official birth certificates issued to individuals when they were adults. This was done because a person would have requested to have a birth certificate for some official need, and would have been backed up by a baptismal record and affidavits.

Although I transcribed these records, I don't want to post the list on this site because they are copyrighted by USGenWeb. However, you can view the list at this link.
