My interest in Plasida (or Placida)and Pedro is due to the fact that they stood up with my grandparents at their wedding. Being a curandera and partera, Plasida had a unique position in the community of Cabezon. What I wouldn't do to talk to her and hear her story? She could probably provide more information than church records on births and local history. My grandparents were Clemente and Sara Lucero. Their son, Benjamin, married Agrepina "Pina" Lovato. She is the daughter of Eduvigen Lovato and Lucarita Maestas. I am sure that Donaciano and Eduvigen are related. The Lovatos from San Luis are all related. Benny is deceased but my aunt still lives in Albuquerque. 1900 US Census Records reflect that Plasida had nine children of which six were alive in 1900. I find that your grandmother Atilana came from Juan Garcia and Plasida Chavez. A man by the name of Lalo Hernandez claims that Juan may have been a doctor and it was from him that Plasida learned her medical skills. Lalo comes from Pedro and Plasida's daughter, Rose. Atilana's brother, Rosendo, was close to my family by fact that my aunts and uncles all called him "Primo Rosendo." Rosendo ran a dance hall/bar in Cabezon. Have you ever seen the books of Nasario Garcia? In one of his volumes he talks to Lovatos and I recall an image of Donaciano. I have been in contact with several of your cousins including a Mary Kaehny who lives in SoCal. Mary has written a nice rememberance of Plasida that I would be happy to share. I am writing you from NorCal. I want to hear more about Alfredo Montano. I think you should talk to my aunt Pina L. Lucero. I am sure that she could fill in gaps for you.
