About Juan de la Cruz Chávez

Ben M. Angel notes: I am presuming that he must have died shortly after his wedding with Maria Josefa Salazar. About 14 months later, she was back at the same church with Felipe Angel, apparently as her second groom.

The year they married was a notorious period of time in Las Vegas. With the arrival of the Atchison Topeka and the Santa Fe, the town quickly changed overnight from a quiet traders' stop on the Santa Fe trail to a war zone as all the gun fighters that had plagued Dodge City in Kansas migrated southwesterly with the end of the train line. It wouldn't be surprising to have found that Juan was killed in all the shooting.
