From An Indian View of Popé:
Juan Lorenzo and the other Francisco Lorenzo, full brothers, who when the rebellion broke out were living on a little rancho near the pueblo of San Felipe, along with their mother and a grown brother of theirs. On the day of the glorious San Lorenzo, a Saturday, the two declarants were going simply and as Christians to the pueblo of San Felipe to see if the minister religious had come to say mass, and to hear it, when the Indians of the pueblo seized them and they found themselves prisoners, being still confused about the cause. They kept them in the plaza of the pueblo under guard because a number of Indians had left the said pueblo for that of Santo Domingo, to kill the religious, the alcalde mayor, and the other persons who might be there, as in fact they did, and these two witnesses saw them return from committing the said murders, and telling what had happened. They saw also that on that same evening at about the time of the angelus there arrived at the said pueblo the elder brother of these two deponents, named Bartolomé Naranjo. The Indians of the pueblo came up to him and said, “Are you willing to help the Indians and be on their side in order to kill the religious and the Spaniards?” To which their said brother replied, “Are you crazy? What is it you are trying to do?” And he was unwilling to agree to it, saying that it was not right. After leaving him alone for a time they seized him and perfidiously and treacherously fell upon him with war clubs and killed him.
