"Tonque" bricks

Does anybody have any information about "Tonque" bricks purportedly manufactured by A.J. Frank from near Tunque Pueblo in northern New Mexico? Pics would be great too! Thanks!

  1. On or about 1986 I took the San Felipe exit of I-25 and traveled east on an almost nonexistent dirt road. I arrived at a ruins. The north wall , except for the foundation, was all that was left of a large two story Masonry structure. There were bricks scattered around. The bricks were embossed with the word "Tonque"

  3. I have a very nice Tonque brick I found in Bernalillo, NM. I'd post a picture of it if I could figure out how..
