Chama Cemetery in Chama, Rio Arriba County, New Mexico.
From NM 17 north of Chama, just past river bridge, take road S at ‘Cemetery’ sign. Take left fork to cemetery; at end of road.
There are a total of 79 grave sites with the oldest birth being around 1842.
Sadly, I found quite a few graves with very young children.
And many unmarked graves
“Our dead are never dead to us, until we have forgotten them.” ~ George Eliot
“Every day, people serve their neighbors and our nation in many different ways, from helping a child learn and easing the loneliness of those without a family to defending our freedom overseas. It is in this spirit of dedication to others and to our country that I believe service should be broadly and deeply encouraged.” ~ John McCain
