I am sending the information I also have on the cemetery known as San Antonio which is also located in Virden, Hidalgo Co., New Mexico. It is a little Mexican cemetery located beside the remains of a Catholic Church at the head of the Virden Valley. At one time, there was a settlement there known as San Antonio de Gila. It was founded before 1887. These are the known burials in that cemetery. This cemetery is not far from the Virden Catholic Cemetery.
Thanks for posting this. Molly Bejarano
