After serving several terms as the governor of Acoma Pueblo, Solomon moves his family to San Francisco…
Solomon and Juana have six children. The daughters are Rose, Irma, Clara and Celia. And the two boys are Leroy and Carl.
Solomon is respected as the Acoma governor, but eventually tensions arise between him and the pueblo Elders on account of his support for the Indian schools. Due to that and the necessity of finding better education for his children, Solomon moves his family to San Francisco.
While there, Juana and Solomon raise their kids in the Jewish faith, even though Juana was born Catholic.
Solomon goes throgh a number of major crises, including the Great Earthquake of 1906 which nearly wipes out all his life’s savings. He often returns to his beloved New Mexico to take care of the sheep business he still has there.
While eventually rebuilding his fortunes once again, his estate is devastated by the Great Depression that begins in 1929.
Juana outlives Solomon by seven years, long enough to see the world change dramatically yet again, as World War 2 rages on.
Solomon and Juana’s descendants are many and include Hispanics, Native Americans and Jews.
