Biographical / Historical
The Trujillos acquired their land through a Homestead Grant around 1895 and the land acquired extended from El Tonuco to the west area of Las Uvas, New Mexico. The family utilized the land and settled in the Hatch area and farmed the area for approximately 135 years.
Juan Jose and Rosaura had three children: Lasara, Victoria, and Martin. The couple also raised three additional children who belonged to other immediate family members. The children they raised as their own were Amadeo Trujillo, Jesus Trujillo, and Julian Montoya.
Generations of the Trujillo family grew and extended which caused the family to relocate to various parts of the United States. The bulk of the family moved to California and some remained in New Mexico.
