Most of the priests serving under Bishop Jean-Baptiste Lamy were French (highlighted in red), many of them from Auvergne, the Bishop’s region in  France. The origin of the priests is indicated when known. The list is derived mainly from Nancy Hanks’ book “Lamy’s Legion“, HRM Books, Santa Fe, New Mexico 2000, and might not be complete.

Priests found by Bishop Lamy upon his arrival in 1851 (according to Archbishop Salpointe in his book “Soldiers of the Cross“, page 282):

Jose Manuel Galiegos (Gallegos)
Jose de Jesus Leiva
Jose de Jesus Lujan
