Sam Adams, Civil War pensioner, and an unidentified child, at what is now Pecos National Historical Park, near Pecos, New Mexico

Photographer: Jesse Nusbaum
Date: 1915
Negative Number: 013498

We don’t know whether Samuel Adams was born enslaved or free: there’s only some vague hints that he might have been from Virginia. He was living and working in Colorado in the 1860s when he enlisted in the Civil War, serving as a cook with the Colorado Volunteers at least around 1864-1865. Adams settled in the Galisteo/Cerrillos area of New Mexico and married a local Hispanic woman named Timotea Chavez. Although the child is unidentified, there’s a small chance that (s)he could be Isabel Chavez, one of the younger kids in the family (Isabel was later married to Las Vegas restaurateur Mama Lucy Lopez) or his younger sister Tillie Chavez.

I really enjoy all the great pics of the New Mexico past. Thanks!
I absolutely love this page. I was raised in Ruidoso, but moved to Mississippi in 1994. I miss my home state and home town. I would love to see some old photos of lincoln or Ruidoso. Keep up the fantastic work. Sincerely, your mountain son in Mississippi.
Sweet Santa Fe the place to be
Great photos
Palace of the Governors, along with it’s Photo Archives, served as a treasure trove when researching on subjects for my next art project. New Mexico is where it all came together for everyone. The history is so finely preserved with so much employee talent. Bravo my friends!
Thank you for posting all these wonderful photos. My Grandfather Dr. Edwin F. Wolfe was a dentist in Santa Fe. His office was right near the La Fonda Hotel. I use to visit nearly every summer from California.
I love the historic photos on this site. It’s wonderful to be reminded of New Mexico’s unique history.
