Am looking for the children of Nacho and Loretta Valdez that use to live in the old house in Gleeson. Believe she passed away and Nacho may have remarried and built a new brick house on the road to Gleeson close to the cemetery. Believe it is empty now.

Nacho used to work in the turquoise mines and Loretta cooked for some of the local ranch hands. One of their son's name was Toby.

I met them in 1962 and they used to be very close friends of my mother's family. She was Maria Luisa Gonzalez who married Pedro Noriega and their children were Olga and Emily Ann. Olga was born in 1931 in Douglas where they lived at the time but traveled to Gleeson to check their ranch there.

Maria Luisa's mother was Carmen de la Garza de Gonzalez.

If anyone knows of this family, please contact me.
