    Looking through various parish records of the region where my ancestry is from(Western and Southern Jalisco), majority of people died from good ole fashioned illness, fever, or childbirth. Death by violence was very rare in the records, except around the 1910's Revolution and 1930's Cristero War era. Granted, I'm sure there were quite a bit of unrecorded deaths as well.
    Yeah, a lot of my history comes from AZ/CA. Some of these people, including the widow and two sons of Andres, were also the last to safely cross the Anza trail. The Anza trail was closed in 1781 when the Quechen (Yuma natives) closed it down and killed Rivera and burned down two missions and a garison. They stopped at Yuma crossing to rest. Rivera sent those who could travel on to the coast, and some stayed behind to rest a few days until they and livestock were rested enough to go. Instead those who stayed behind were bludgeoned to death by Quechen warriors. Glad my ancestors made it through.

    EARLY 20th CENTURY: Sonora desert U.S. Territory Arizona ,
    Each child would then have chores. Kids, here were charged with a horse, usually an old one at about 8. They would learn to ride on it and rope. They would then be given a new born colt at about 10 and charged with its feed and care. When the horse was old enough to break, it would be saddled up and the young boy would be on it , sandwhiched between his father and tio, in a sandy wash. They would then gallop up the sandy wash. Galloping would deny the breaking horse chance to buck, the sand also limited the horses bucking while also providing a somewhat softer place to land in case he came off.
