Top row is farm hand Nestor Duran (probably a cousin of Grandmother Filomena); Adelina (maid/servant who came from Conejos, CO with Great-Grandmother Placida Chaves-Sanchez, where she married school teacher Cristoval Sanchez); Grandfather Pedro Sanchez. Bottom row is Great-Grandmother Placida Chaves-Sanchez, mother of Grandfather Pedro; Juan Cristobal Sanchez (birth certificate name); Grandmother Filomena Duran-Sanchez with infant Jose Pedro Sanchez. (they would dress baby boys like girls then.)
