Pedro Carriaga was a native of Mexico according to several census and voting records. Sometime before 1868 he relocated to Santa Clara County, California, where he went to work in the New Almaden Quicksilver mine. He continued working there until his death in about 1893. Pedro first married Francisca Avila at New Almaden on January 19, 1868, and they were the parents of Flavia, Paula (Chaboya), Maria (Hernandez), and Sylvester. After Francisca's death, Pedro married Clorinda Gonzales in 1883. They were the parents of Felix and Mary, who later took their stepfather's last name when Clorinda married Jose Lucero after Pedro's death. Clorinda gave birth to her first child by Jose Lucero in Los Gatos in November, 1894.

According to her family, Pedro's daughter Maria Carriaga Hernandez was half or full Native American, and DNA testing indicates this to be true also. Pedro and/or his first wife Francisca Avila were full or partly Native American.
