San Antonio Cemetery

NMG 37:3, September 1998, pp 121 – 124; The San Antonio Cemetery is located on the west side of NM 14, one and one half miles north of the Tijeras, NM intersection of Interstate 40 and NM 14. The cemetery is easily seen from the road and has a chain link fence surrounding it. The San Antonio Church is located about a quarter mile south of the cemetery on NM 14, also on the west side of the highway. (Section 11, Township 10 North, Range 5 East, Sandia Park Quadrangle.) The cemetery was partially surveyed in 1984, when Mollie Miller and Ann Mossman recorded a dozen of the early grave markers. A complete survey was made in June 1997 by Joseph Jaskolski and members of Boy Scout Troop 200 under the guidance of the New Mexico Genealogical Society. Several additional trips were made to the cemetery to recheck tombstones. The cemetery is approximately 80 feet wide (on the side running along the highway) and 350 feet deep. As you enter the cemetery from the road side, it continually rises uphill. The older section is at the far west end of the cemetery which is farthest from the road. There are only a few legible markers in the first half of the cemetery; it is even difficult to identify grave sites. The last one third of the cemetery, nearest the road, is well marked. There are only one or two rows of vacant cemetery space left, which are nearest the road at the entrance. Order of List: The cemetery was recorded starting at the far southwest corner, farthest from the road, and moving from south to north. There are over 50 unmarked graves or illegible markers, none included in this listing. There are steel fence posts about every ten feet running along the south side of the cemetery. The fence posts have been included in the listing to give an approximate location of the rows. Fence post #1 is the corner post in the southwest corner. Transcriber: C. W. Barnum and Ramona Laffler. 2005
