I am looking for any info about Joseph Cornelius Francis born, 16 April 1854, in Santa Fe, New Mexico. He lived in Montana for a time and it is my understanding that he helped bury the dead after Custers Last Stand. Apparently he changed his name over the years. He was born Joseph Cornelius Trujillo and when in Montana was named Joseph Cornelius Hill. When he came to Oregon and married my grandmother he said his name was Joseph Cornelius Francis. I have found a marriage license in Bozeman, Montana of his marriage to an Indian girl on September 19, 1882. His surname was Hill at this time and the license said he was marrying a Miss Carets? (Ole) a Crow.

The witnesses to that marriage were I. Allen and Barney Bravo. The minister was T.D. Lewis. Joseph Cornelius Hill was a full blooded Spaniard. He was my grandfather and would really like to know some more about him as I know nothing except after he married my grandmother here in Oregon.
