Jose Epitacio Torres - the untimely death of his infant daughter: February 1905

The February 4, 1905, Socorro Chieftain newspaper above has two notices about Jose Epitacio Torres, my 2nd great grandfather. The first one, on the left, is a notice of dissolution in the partnership between W. I. Liles and Jose E. Torres. Jose E. Torres was to assume all debts and liabilities of the firm.

The second notice, on the right, is about the untimely death of Jose E. Torres' infant. I believe this to be Maria Dolores Torres, who was born on October 9, 1904 to Jose Epitacio Torres and his wife Maria Guadalupe Padilla.

The Socorro chieftain. (Socorro, N.M.), 04 Feb. 1905. Chronicling America: Historic American Newspapers. Lib. of Congress.
