Forgotten Friday – Chama Cemetary

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
