i really love this picture!mostly all my family were born in jerome my grandparents came from mexico in the 1900's and my granfather reyes rios flores worked the mines all his mother aurora flores and my three uncles were born there my mother is still alive at the age of 89 my brother raymond peraza was also born there in 1941 as some of the cousins.i had the pleasure and unforgettable memories of also visting there when i was about 8 and even though i am 52 now i still remember a sort of different freedom felt there.i hope and pray to take my three children and my mother there soon to vist.even though i am born in albany ca i feel a connection there perhaps the reson is that my mother aurora flores says those were the happiest days of her life.she has many pictures from years ago that perhaps you would like to see letme know.
