Mayor. Born in Marseilles, France. Jose arrived in the San Pedro harbor in May of 1844, after trading up and down the coast he would settle in Los Angeles for 55 years. At eleven years old he went to sea in Merchant service and attaining his majority in 1837, he entered the French Navy with a service of four years. Jose was fluent in French and Spanish and used both as he served as a Mayor and a Councilman. His first marriage was in 1844 to Constancia Goytino of Mexico in Los Angeles, California. She died in 1890. They had nine children, Charles, Jose Jr., Constance, Hortense, Marie Larquier, Josephine Twist, Margarita Drouet, Adele Kracke and Eugenie Hoover.
