Jose Leroy Ulibarri

Born:          1938
Baptized:    1938

***I have more information but I can't find it right now. I have to see if I may have placed it in the wrong folder in my computer

I do have the Baptism Index which I have posted below.

My Grandmother had told me about Jose Leroy. She remembered when he died - she would have been about 10 years old at the time he was born. She said that her father made a wooden box to place him in, with a glass window on the front so that his face could be viewed. When I asked her the location of where he was buried, she in an area near the side of a road. In the eyes of a 10 year old, the cemetery in Los Ojos could have been that location "near the side of a road", as well as any other cemetery location.

I could have sworn I remember her saying that he was buried on the farm but I don't believe they had it yet, when he was born. The 1930 and 1940 Censuses both show Jose Alfredo and Maria Rita living in Nutrias, so its possible he was buried there. The last time my Grandma went to New Mexico, was around 2008 and the roads were too sketchy to get to Las Nutrias - my sisters car got stuck and they turned back. My Grandma may have possibly had a better recollection had she been able to get back to that area to refresh her memory.

I'll post more when I find the rest of the info I had, including notes from our conversation. Hopefully I can find them.
