Subject: happy? – Jan 19 (El diecinueve de enero)
From: Abby Sale
Date: 19 Jan 06 - 08:37 AM

         El diecinueve de enero,
        que el pueblo se alborotó—
        cuando fué el primer asal-to
        que José Mosquera dió.

                "La Batalla del Ojo de Agua," Ethnic Music of ...The Spanish Southwest,
                Library of Congress LP, AFS L5

[Also at La batalla del ojo de agua] From the fieldnotes: "The story of a robbery between Brownsville and Point Isabel, Texas, of the Rio Grande Railroad. Modqueda was the hero. This song also called the Nineteenth of January, as the hold-up occurred on Jan. 19, 1892."

John Hardy (a desperate little man) was hanged the 19th day of January 1894. A witness stated he killed a man in a crap game over 25 cents. (From what purports to be a quote of the actual court record cited, J & A Lomax, FS USA, p.363.) If there's much more to be learned about him, I expect John Garst will find it in the next few months.
