About Elena Ruíz Cáceres

Died during the Pueblo Revolt of 1680. Her two daughters escaped the massacre of 1680; possibly they were captured by the Taos Indians and were rescued in 1692, or else they were with their mother's relatives who escaped. One of these was María who became the wife of Sebastián Martín Serrano, and the other was Josefa who married Antonio de Cisneros.
