Civil War Headstones - Santa Fe National Cemetery
Over the decades I have spent many hours just walking around this beautiful cemetery looking at all the headstones and what they might be telling us. We don't have too many Civil War Headstones that occupy this cemetery, but I found one in 2005 that was of interest to me. Abelino Blea who died October 18, 1910. Unfortunately, it didn't have his birth date, but it does have his company and on the reverse side, his widow's name as she was later buried with him and her name is Cassimira Escudero. She would have passed on 100 years ago this year.
