Manzanares, Jesus M.
Jesus Maria Manzanares - Independent - April 7, 1933 - J. M. Manzanares, 103 Years Old, Dies at Home In City Yesterday - Oldest Man in Huerfano County Dies at Home of His Daughter; Lives Colorful Life of Early Pioneer of Untamed West, was born on January 6, 1830. Came to Colorado in 1853; to Huerfano County in 1869; Settled at Cucharas and Grew With Huerfano County. Huerfano County's Grand Old Man is Dead! Jesus Maria Manzanares, the oldest man in Huerfano County, died at the age of 103 Friday morning at his home on East Sixth Street. His death marks the passing of one of the earliest pioneers of Colorado, and one of the last historical figures in this county. Manzanares was born January 6, 1830, in a little adobe house at Ojo Caliente, N.M., and during his span of life watched the development of the railroad, telephone, electricity, airplanes, radio, and all the other wonders of the present world, which have entered into the use of humans in the last century. He stated at the celebration of his 100th birthday, which was held in this city January 6, 1930, that the possibilities of the future stunned him. When asked at that time to what he attributed his longevity he stated that it was because he thought "living was too much fun to stop" and that long life was the nature of his family, for his mother lives to be 109 years of age. He came to Colorado with his parents in 1853, settling in Costillo County. They lived there and took part in the last serious outbreak of the Indians against the Mexican people in 1855. It was at this time that the Indians kidnapped two Mexican boys. He came to Huerfano County in 1869, settling at Cucharas Junction, then the proudest trading post in eastern Huerfano County. His parents left him at this time and settled at Redwing. He was married before he came to Huerfano County, having become wed to Maria Rita Tafoya in 1865, from which wedlock six children were born, all with the exception of one living at the present time. During the early years he made several trips "bull whacking" between St. Louis, Kansas and Santa Fe, all the freight being brought overland by way of Denver. When the railroad pushed thru to Cucharas Junction in 1876, Manzanares joined with others in platting pretentious town sites, and brick walls started to rise, but Cucharas dwindled and became a ghost town when the water supply gave out. In the early times wolf packs ravished the Cucharas canon district where he ran his sheep, and often he would hunt buffalo on the Apishipa east of Trinidad in the early days. He killed his last wolf 23 years ago. Manzanares came to Walsenburg eight years ago to make his home with his daughter. His wife died 10 years ago at the age of 72. For several terms Manzanares served as Justice of the Peace and constable at Cucharas, and took an active part during all of his years in Huerfano County. He was president at the last Democratic assembly held in this county July 30, 1932, and at this meeting nominated Sid Wilburn for the office of county surveyor, and seconded the nomination of Harvey Starbuck for county judge and Damacio Vigil for county clerk. Starbuck later withdrew his nomination. Manzanares had a fair education and could read and write both English and Spanish. It was mainly through his efforts that a school for teaching the English language was established. Through his own efforts he became an efficient carpenter and builder, and was an artist at weaving. In the early days he followed cattle as a cowboy and was an expert either with a pistol, rifle or bow and arrow. The past time that he enjoyed most was playing ball. He is survived by one son, A.T. Manzanares, Denver; four daughters. Mrs. J.G. Bustos of Cucharas, Mrs. J.M. Lucero of Cucharas, Mrs. J.E. Vigil of Huerfano, and Mrs. J.S. Chavez of this city; thirty grandchildren, and forty three great grandchildren. Funeral arrangements had not yet been completed at press time.
