Two men stand at the grave of Maria Ursulita Vialpondo in the cemetery in Chama (Costilla County), Colorado. An elderly Hispanic American man stands with his hat in his hand. Beside him stands possibly his son, Moises Vialpondo. A large cross is near the men. The gravestone had a lamb on top and a heart shaped center with letters that read: "Maria Ursulita Vialpondo July 29, 1877, Oct. 21, 1940."
