A quote from the issue:

"Virginia M. Silva Kleeber has submitted a wealth of information on her Silva ancestors. To her knowledge there were two branches of the SILVA family. One branch lived in the Taos area, and the other branch lived in the Rio Abajo area. She is related to the Silva family that lived at Taos, New Mexico. Virginia’s great- great-great grandfather was Santiago SILVA from Taos, New Mexico. He was born between 1744 and 1762 and was buried 19 March 1836 at Taos. Santiago SILVA married Juana Encarnacion VELASQUEZ about 1786. Santiago SILVA and his family are listed in the 1790 Taos census. Both Santiago and Juana Encarnacion were listed as “mestizo.” Virginia believes Santiago and his family were living at Taos Pueblo, although she does not know why they were living there and/or if they were of mixed Spanish and Indian heritage. According to Fray Angélico Chávez, the Silva family came to New Mexico with the colonists of 1693. They first settled in the Santa Cruz area, but by the turn of the century had moved to Bernalillo and then to Albuquerque.

More about this family, including a descendancy chart, was presented in this issue.
