General Note:
From inventory: "Juan Bautista Córdova was born in 1830. In his early years, Juan freighted for the U.S. Army making annual trips to St. Louis, Missouri hauling freight for the Fort Garland Army Post. He married María Quirina Sánches and they raised their daughter Magdalena in the confines of the Purgatory Canyon. He established Red Rocks Plaza (known as Piedras Coloradas), referred to as the Cordova Plaza. The Plaza was composed of an extended family with Juan serving as patron. He relocated to Hoehne and Model, Colorado, and in 1910 the plaza was abandoned." (Courtesy of Hispanic Pioneers in Colorado and New Mexico).
