Obituary from Santa Fe New Mexican 8-3-1917:
"AUNT MARY" GOLD HAS PASSED AWAY
WIDOW OF FAMOUS CURIOSITY SHOP PROPRIETOR DIES AT HOME IN BROOKLYN
Mrs. Mary Gold, formerly of Santa Fe, died at ther home in Brooklyn, NY on July 31. She had been in bad health for a good many years.
Mrs. Gold was the widow of Abe Gold, one of the very well and favorably known early citizens of Santa Fe, who died and is buried here.
Abe Gold was a son of Louis Gold, a pioneer, who originated "Gold's Old Q'rosity Shop", a famous showplace of Indian and Mexican curios in its day, located at the corner of Burro alley and San Francisco street. Jake Gold succeeded to the ownership of that emporium. and later Abe Gold was its proprietor.
The passing of "Aunt Mary," as she was familiarly known, marks the end of the trail for another of those early settlers from the east who came here along the Santa Fe trail before the days of the railroad, risking the hardships of the journey, but more so the ____ of predatory Indians.
Her death will awaken memories among the "old timers."
