Classification: Query
Surnames: Briggs/Montoya/Mitchell
Private Theodore Briggs served under General Carlton, Co. B, 1st Regiment, California Volunteers, during the Civil War. Pvt. Briggs mustered out in 1865 at Fort Union, New Mexico.

Theodore Briggs married Ynesa Montoya at Sapello, San Miguel County, New Mexico, in 1865. They had a daughter named Perfillia born 1867 in San Miguel County, NM.

Ynesa died 1897 at Old Tascosa, Oldham County, Texas, and is buried at Romero Cemetery, Tascosa (now Boys Ranch), Oldham County, Texas.

Theodore Briggs married a second time to Emma Mitchell in 1900 in Oldham County, Texas,--nothing more known about her.

In 1903, Theodore Briggs died at the age 68. I am looking for details of his death. Where he died--whether in Oldham County, Texas, or in San Miguel County, New Mexico. Where was he buried?
