from wikipedia, regarding Kit Carson.
Marriage to Josefa Jaramillo

By 1842 Carson met and became engaged to the daughter of a prominent Taos family: Josefa Jaramillo. After receiving instruction from Padre Antonio José Martínez, he was baptized into the Catholic Church in 1842. At 34, Carson married his third wife, 14-year-old Josefa, on February 6, 1843. They had eight children together, the descendants of whom remain in the Arkansas Valley of Colorado.[14]

I have the Lawrence R. Murphy book on Lucien Maxwell in front of me. It gives the same information. I'm tempted to believe that Josefa Jaramillo, the wife of Christopher "Kit" Carson, was the sister of Telesforo and José Jaramillo, who married two of Lucien Maxwell's daughters, but I cannot prove it. I believe the parents of Telesforo and José Jaramillo were José Jaramillo Sr., and his wife Trinidad. Is that correct?
