  SOLDIERS INVOLVED WITH EL PASO ACTIVITES

We have not yet recovered rosters of the Presidios at Carrizal, San Elizario, and other places along the Rio Grande and in Nueva Viscaya, but we do have names of many soldiers who contributed in some way to El Paso activities. The prenuptial investigations required of all soldiers who requested to marry is an excellent source of information on past associations. These include statements from soldiers and former associates of the applicant as far away as Spain. From these statements, we can draw up a list of all soldiers in the El Paso area and of their former associates.

It should be noted that the El Paso area was itself a part of New Mexico, and that San Elizario was its local Presidio, albeit somewhat downriver. However, the garrison had been moved from Guajoquilla in the general reshuffling of Presidio locations in the Provincias Internas, so many of the San Elizario soldiers show Guajoquilla as place of birth. Likewise, the Presidio formerly at El Paso had been moved to Carrizal, therefore most of the soldiers of Carrizal show El Paso as place of birth.

An asterisk is shown for those known to have been Patriots during Spain's 1779-1783 War with England.

The term soldier generally refers to a leather jacket soldier, and the term trooper to a member of the Tropa Liguera (Light Troops) and the term auxiliary to the Indians who were attached to units as scouts or guides.
