To Lucy Duran:
My great-grandfather's name was Ben Duran, he was born in the 1880's/ I don't have specifics yet, and great-grandmother's name was Natividad Valdez, born 10/1/1893. Her parents were Regino Valdez and Anastacia Jacquez. I was fortunate to know them both, they lived until they were 98 years of age.
His brother still lives in Alamosa, and his name is Joe Duran. My mother is going to talk to him and get more information. I'll give her your info and maybe come up with more. Please feel free to write to me
. look forward to it.
