"From the time Ramon Garcia Jurado moved to New Mexico as a colonist in 1693 until his death at the age of  80 in 1760, he was a witness and participant in the Spanish settlement of New Mexico. It is likely he was on a campaign against the Navajos during his visit to El Morro in 1709." His inscription is enclosed in the box, it says "On the 25th of the month of June, of this year of 1709, Ramon Garcia Jurado passed through here on the way to Zuni."
