Nabor Pacheco has practically spent his entire
life in Tucson in which city he was born on the 12th of July 1863, a son of
Refugio and Paula (Cruz) Pacheco. The father was born in the town of Ignacio
(SAN IGNACIO DEL TUBAC), but
was brought to Tucson in infancy and was here reared and educated. Tucson
was the birthplace of the mother. Being endowed with good business
ability, Refugio Pacheco met with success in his business affairs. In
matters of citizenship he was progressive and enterprising, possessing the
powers of organization and resourcefulness which stamped him as a leader in the
community, as a member of the Board of Supervisors of Pima County. Although he was only thirty six years of age at the time of his
death, which occurred in 1873, he had acquired valuable tracts of land in and
around Tucson and was numbered among the representative citizens of Pima County.
He took a very active interest in political affairs. In his family were
seven children, of whom five are still living: Nabor,
being the eldest, Mateo, Manuel, Jesus M., and Refugio.
Nabor Pacheco attended school in Tucson and upon the completion of his education
began farming and cattle raising on land left him by his father, owning a tract
of about one hundred and sixty acres near the city. For about thirteen
years he held official positions, Chief of Police of Tucson and Sheriff of Pima County, and for two and one half years had charge of
one hundred men employed at Tucson Farms near the city. He is today one of
the substantial citizens of Tucson and has valuable realty interests.
It was in this city that Mr. Pacheco was married to Miss Carmen Monteverde, Born
in Hermosillo Mexico in 1861 of Italian-Spanish heritage, and to them have been born the
following children: Nabor Jr., Enrique (Henry), Powleta (Paula),
(Richardo), Ameda, Viola and Raquel.
