What happened to the crib at Concordia Cenetery?

Posted by Henry Flores on Tuesday, April 5, 2016

If you listen to Mike and Tricia Mornings, you know we are all about the ghosteses of El Paso. We love talking about whether or not our building is haunted - it is, by the way - and we get into other El Paso ghost stories, as well. One of our favorite places to talk about is Concordia Cemetery. It is the over 100 year old cemetery off of I-10 in the middle of town.

Concordia holds the grave of John Wesley Hardin, a notorious gunslinger, it is the final resting place of a number of Buffalo Soldiers from the Civil War, and in a corner of the cemetery close to L&J Cafe, the Children's Tree holds another iconic Concordia artifact - the baby crib. The baby crib marks the final resting place of Cynthia Jimenez who died in 1971. Her father built the crib that marks Cynthia's gravesite.

Henry Flores of Ghost 915 takes us for a walk through Concordia, and tells us the story of Cynthia and her crib.
