Lemitar Cemetery, Socorro County, New Mexico

“It Tolled for New Mexico” notes that Lemitar had a population of 542 persons in 1940.

 

In 2002, Gonzalez's sister, Zella, recalled, “There weren't even 150 people living in Lemitar at the time.”

 

Reynaldo Gonzalez (with a Z) and Jose Antonio “Tony” Gonzales (with an S) were brothers.
