Boleslo A. Pino Socorro County, New Mexico

Boleslo A. Pino, probate clerk at Socorro, was born there May 13, 1869, a son of Juan Pino y Baca and Erinea (Baca) Pino. The father, born in Socorro, is still living in the town, and has devoted the years of his manhood largely to the cattle business, although in early life he was a freighter over the Santa Fé trail to the St. Louis & Kansas City Railroad. At one time he was sheriff of Socorro County, and he is still engaged in the cattle business.

Boleslo A. Pino was educated in the public schools of Socorro and in St. Michael's College at Santa Fe, where he studied for three years. He entered business life as a clerk in a mercantile establishment, where he remained five years, and for two years was manager for the Park City Mercantile Company, while for nine years he served as bookkeeper for Henry Chambon. In the meantime he served as city clerk for one term, elected in 1900, and in 1902 and again in 1904 was elected probate clerk on the Democratic ticket. He is a public-spirited citizen and has made a clean record as an official. In addition to discharging the duties of the office, he gives supervision to a cattle ranch which he owns in Socorro County.

On the 21st of June, 1890, Mr. Pino married Teresa Pino, and their children are Soila, Ines, Lucela, Erinea and Isabel. The parents are communicants of the Catholic Church, and Mi. Pino has always given his political allegiance to the Democracy.
