Candelaria (Cuaron) Miranda
     Candelaria Miranda was born on 28 January 1882 at Dona Ana, Dona Ana County, New Mexico; Although her cemetery marker shows that she was born in 1881, her death certificate indicates that she was born on 28 January, 1882. According to surviving family members residing in Dona Ana, Candelaria was born in nearby Old Mesilla; however, her death certificate indicates that she was born in Dona Ana.2,3 She was baptized on 2 February 1882.1 She married Gregorio Cuaron, son of Florencio Cuaron and Apolonia Pena, circa 1899; Candaleria was about 17 years old when her first child was born in 1899, so the date of her marriage couldn't have been much earlier than 1897 or 1898. They were listed as husband and wife in the 1900 census.4,5,2 Her married name was Cuaron.3 Candelaria Cuaron died on 8 March 1947 at Dona Ana, Dona Ana County, New Mexico, at age 65; Although her cemetery marker indicates that she died in 1946, her death certificate confirms that she actually died at 6 AM on 8 March, 1947, from an acute coronary occlusion.2,3 On Candelaria's cemetery marker, her last name is spelled "Guaron"; however, that was probably a typographical error.6 She was buried on 12 March 1947 at Dona Ana Cemetery, Dona Ana, Dona Ana County, New Mexico.2,3

In the 1910 census Candelaria indicates that she had seven children, of which only five survived. She spoke spanish, but could not read or write, according to the 1910 census. According to family lore, her mother was an Apache Indian.

Candelaria's grandson, Senon Reyes, identified the house that belonged to her and her husband Gregorio. It is adjacent to the church in Dona Ana. When she died, Candelaria donated the house to the church.7,8
