1876 Daily New Mexican page one. 1876 Daily New Mexican page one.

   I will be posting the four pages of the October 10, 1876 "The Daily New Mexican." Two and a half pages are in English and one and a half in Spanish. The newspaper was published by "The Daily New Mexican. Published daily except Sunday by Manderfield and Tucker, Proprietors and Editors." Page one featurs the funeral of my great grandfather's brother, Sigmund Seligman. He died at Fort Craig from an apparent stroke. He dies on October 4, 1876. He was forty six years old. The paper states he was buried at the "Odd Fellows Cemetery. Anybody know this location?'

   Also on page one is an ad for Z. Stabb & Bro. which extols "Fast Mule Teams, The latest novelties of fashion and style from the eastern markets, which we shall offer to the trade at lowest prices."

From personal collection.

    Odd Fellows meeting hall is north of Cerrillos Road and Cordova Road intersection across from Department of Transportation. There is an indigent cemetery right next to the building. The city's more affluent people have family plots to the east of there like Twitchell, Renehan, Catron, etc., that are visible from the Cordova roadway as you turn.
