5.  Biosketch:    Much has been written about Miguel A. Otero & his immediate family.  He was Territorial Governor from June 24th 1897 until 1906.  He was inaugurated in Santa Fe, NM.  His father, Vincente Otero and Jose Lorenzo Otero were brothers, sons of Pedro Otero and Juliana Alars.  Josa Felipe Santiago Otero was the son of Jose Lorenzo Otero, and Miguel Otero was the son of Vicente Otero, therefore, they were first cousins.  Miguel was instrumental in our Otero group moving to Tajique, NM from Valencia, NM.  They were given certain parcel os land to be used for farming and grazing their sheep.  Some settled in Manzano, NM and some in Torreon.  I have a copy of the deed which made them revolt with the Indians of the area.  Our group of Otero's went to Las Vegas, NM.

Marty CORDOVA

1.  Marty was already three seasons into his professional baseball career in 1991 and was playing for Visalia, the Minnesota Twins' Class A affiliate in the California League.

2.  But, he got his chance in the "big league".

3.  Marty was the American League "Rookie of the Year" in 1995, earning a $109,000 salary with the Minnnesota Twins.

4.  The following is from a newspaper clipping:
    Red Sox sign outfielder Cordova
         BOSTON - The Boston Red Sox on Wednesday agreed to terms with free agent outfielder Marty Cordova, who was the AL's Rookie of the Year in 1995 before becoming too pricey for the small market Minnesota Twins.
          The 30-year-old Cordova was signed to a minor-league contract with an agreed-to salary if he makes the team in spring training.  The Red Sox are at their 40-man limit and will have to clear room for him before he can be added to the major-league roster.
         Other terms were not immediately available.
         The Twins could have kept Cordova for $4 million, but they let him become a free agent instead.  He said he had offers from other teams, but he chose Boston because they have the best chance of winning.
         Cordova hit .27 with 24 homers, 84 RBIs and 20 stolen bases in 1995 to be named AL rooke of the year.  He followed that up with a .309 average, 26 homers and 111 RBIs in 1996 and appeared headed for stardom.
         But a foot injury plagued him during 1997 (.246, 15, 51) and '98 (.253, 10, 69).  He began the 1999 season with a sore throwing shoulder and hit .285 with 14 homes and 70 RBIs in 124 games as an outfielder and designated hitter.

5.  He got a $6.3 million dollar 4-year contract.

6.  Marty is now playing for the Baltimore Orioles.
