Grave of Rebecca Jocelyn Vasquez, born and died about 1947 - 1949. Child of Dan and Josephine Vasquez, sister to Danny Vasquez Jr.
Rebecca died from pneumonia. Dan built a tiny little coffin for the baby and walked over the hill to bury her. But due to the weather he couldn't dig the grave deep enough and had to return home with the little coffin to wait for the storm to pass. It was one of Dan and Josephine's last wishes that a decorative wrought iron fence be placed around the baby's grave. The work was done by Jerry Pinon, Jr. Rest in peace Grandma and Grandpa, your wish has been fulfilled. (contributed by Geri Vasquez Montoya, granddaughter of Dan Vasquez.)

This is the old well casing at the Pass Creek School. This is all that's left.
