Based on the 1930 Mexico Census, there were 2,761 individuals living in Ávalos, Chihuahua on May 15, 1930. Listed under Quintas de La Fundición de Ávalos, Chihuahua, are the following ASARCO smelter employees, their families and housekeepers. To view the actual census records for the Colony and the Ávalos community, visit my post on July 7, 2009. I’ve proofread what I’ve posted but please let me know if you see something listed that is in error. I will continue to review this census for clues about the population that worked in and around the smelter.

On a side note, today is the birth date of my great-grandmother, Felicitas Martinez de Morris, who lived in Quinta #25 when this census was taken.
