About Josefa Duran y Chávez

Her mother died during the Pueblo Revolt of 1680. Maria and her sister 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. Josefa became the wife of Antonio de Cisneros, and the other was María who married Sebastián Martín Serrano.
