Searching for any info on my great grandmother Josie Cordova. She was married to Jose Benito Valencia. According to my grandmothers birth record she was 23 in 1928 living possibly Brighton, Adams County Colorado. Birthdate approx.1904/05 marriage date Jan 17 1920 in Huerfano county Colorado?. She had Ophelia, Eva, Annie, and my grandma Sophie. She also had a boy named Philburt who was stillborn. She according to my grandma died when she was 2 years old of Typhoid fever. This would give her death date around1930/31. Sophie's oldest sister, Ophelia, was born in Walsenburg, Colorado in 1921. After she died Jose married her 1st cousin Stedella Cordova. Josie was born in Old Mexico which we believe was New Mexico. Probably Taos area. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!        p.s. Josie, Josefa, Josephine, Josefita Cordova. Are possible names she went by. And we know her mothers name was Marguerite/a she helped raise my grandma after Josie died.
