Pioneer Who Could Recall Pueblo Days to Be Buried This Morning.
Expert Saddle Maker.
The funeral of Antonio Aguilar, who was accidentally killed on Saturday, will be held at 8:30 o'clock this morning at the family residence, No. 1579 Henry street. There will also be services at Sacred Heart Church. Interment will be at Calvary Cemetery.
Mr. Aguilar was born in Lower California eighty-seven years ago, and came here when Los Angeles was a pueblo and the surrounding country was divided into ranchos consisting of thousands of acres, with countless numbers of cattle and horses roaming over the hills and through the valleys.
He took up as an occupation the manufacturing of stockmen's riding saddles, for which California was, and is today, famous. In this he became most proficient, having made some of the most magnificent designs ever shown in the West. At the time of his death he had been in the employ of the Los Angeles Saddlery and Finding Company for fifteen years.
He was always a public-spirited citizen, upholding the law and using his influence among his people in the cause of justice and good citizenship.
He leaves a widow, a daughter, Mrs. Albert Scheller, who resides in San Fernando; a son in Lower California, and a daughter, Mrs. Henry Shore, and a son, Louis Aguilar, who live in this city.
