“Julian Jacquez, Rosa Villalpando,
and the Taos Massacre of August 1760 - Trekking Through Texas”

August 1760 is a dark period in the history of Taos.  Comanches plundered, captured, and murdered many of the villagers.  Rosa Villalpando was taken captive along with several other women, sold to French Trappers, and eventually ended up in St. Louis.  Forty years later, her son, Julian Jacquez ventures out to find his mother on an amazing whirlwind trip via the Camino Real of Texas in early 1803.

Henrietta is a well respected, independent genealogical and historical researcher specializing in northern New Mexico. She has written six family books and numerous articles for various genealogy and history publications and recently assisted with the Segesser Hide Paintings for the History Museum in Santa Fe.
