He and his twin brother Ramon de Haro were the sons of Don Francisco de Haro and Emiliana "Miliana" de los Reyes Sanchez.

They were born in Yerba Buena in Alta California, Mexico (later, San Francisco, California, United States).

He and his twin were murdered, along with their "uncle" (a relative on their mother's side) Jose de los Reyes Berreyessa, while traveling to Sonoma.

Actions of both twins resulted in the U.S. Supreme Court opinion, De Haro v. United States, 72 U.S. 5 Wall. 599 (1866).

In addition, their murder was used against John C. Fremont, when he later ran as the Republican party candidate for U.S. president in 1856, against James Buchanan, because Captain Fremont was responsible for their murder. Fremont lost the election in part because of this "military blunder".
