Hello Pat,

Thank you for the information. I am sorry for not getting back to you sooner. Juan Jose Faustino Higuera is my 5th great-grandfather.Josef Manuel Higuera is my 6th great-grandfather. I wonder how this makes you and I related?

RE: 67830254
Thank you for the information, my wife is related to the Boronda family through the marriage of Jose Eusebio Boronda and Maria Josefa Ramona Buelna.

Her grandfather was Joseph Antonio Buelna who was with the Rivera-Ortega expedition of 1774 to Monterey.

Be careful when looking at old records that show the death place as San Carlos - Most of the soldiers lived and died in the area near the Presidio in Monterey. Carmel was "hands off" (Why Fr. Serra moved his head quarters into the mouth of Carmel Valley. The Carmel Mission Cemetery was reserved for Indian Converts and Priests. Most all of the "Razons" were buried across the river from the Presidio in the ground known as San Carlos Church Cemetery, Campo Santos, Presidio Cemetery, Royal Presidio Church Cemetery, etc. Same ground, just a different name by whoever was recording it that day.

It is a several hour walk, and at least a 2-3 hour ride from Carmel to Monterey, unlikely that any one dying in Carmel would be hauled over the hill to be buried in Monterey.

Fixed, that is what happens when I let my fingers type before I engage my brain. Thanks for the catch
