According to Tony Hillerman in his book, New Mexico, Rio Grande and other essays, 1993:

Truchas is a double line of adobe houses lining a windy cliffedge under the Truchas Peaks, and Las Trampas is a hollow square inthe narrow valley of Rito las Trampas. They were there when George Washington was born. Truchas was founded by two families, and Trampas by a man named Juan De Arguello. Arguello was seventy-seven years old and a battle-scarred veteran of a long life of frontier wars when he led his sons-in-law and their families from Santa Fe to establish this lonely and dangerous new outpost. The chronicles report that when he was ninety-nine he walked over the mountains to the Penasco Vally to ask donations for the village chapel. He died at 117. With the U.S.occupation the village lost all its communal grazing lands. But Las Trampas lives on, terribly poor, and terribly proud of its church which is a lovely and priceless example of Spanish-Colonial architecture.

I haven't found his baptism or birth record. He died 19 Dec 1789 in Las Trampas and was buried the next day.
