The building shown on the postcard was the home of the last Mexican governor of New Mexico, Manuel Armijo (1790-1853). This building was torn down around 1910, and merchant Charles A. Bottger built a new home on the site. This home, at 110 San Felipe NW, is currently the Bottger Mansion of Old Town Bed and Breakfast. Byron Johnson describes the Bottger property and the Armijo antecedent on page 102 of his book "Old Town, Albuquerque, New Mexico: A Guide to Its History and Architecture.”

Howard Bryan wrote an "Off the Beaten Path" column in the February 5, 1959 Albuquerque Tribune, using material from newspaper accounts of Sheridan's visit to Albuquerque on December 3, 1885. Sheridan came for the purpose of checking on the house where his wife, Irene Rucker Sheridan (1856-1939), believed that she had been born. She was the first daughter of Major (later Brigadier General) Daniel H. Rucker, who was assigned to the Albuquerque garrison as the quartermaster. Biographical information about Mrs. Sheridan appears on the website of the Arlington National Cemetery, where the two are buried. When Sheridan inspected the house, a passerby informed him that Irene had not been born there, but at Fort Union, N.M. Two younger sisters definitely were born in the house, in the short time before the Civil War while the Rucker family was posted in Albuquerque. The couple were married in 1875, when he was 44 and she was 19. They had four children before he died in 1888. One son had a military career which brought him to Columbus, NM after the Villa Raid.

The old church of San Felipe faces the plaza in “Old Town” at Albuquerque. It was founded several hundred years ago; services are still held there. Countless throngs have passed through its ever open doors. How much happiness and how much sorrow it knows, one can only guess.
