Juan was a cattle rancher in Cuba. He came to the United States in the early 1850s to escape having to take the loyalty oath to Spain. He believed in Cuban independence. In the U. S. he entered John Price's school in Manchester-By-the Sea in order to learn English.

He fell in love with John Price's foster daughter, Elizabeth Frances Jones, whom he married in 1854. He took her back to Cuba where they remained for over ten years. In 1868, just before the beginning of the Ten Years War in Cuba, Juan, his wife and their children left for the final time after he had freed his slaves and distributed his cattle to various relatives.

Juan and his family moved first to Manchester-By-the-Sea and then to Salem, Mass.,d where after living at several different addresses, they settle at 5 Carpenter Street.

He helped support his family by translating and teaching Spanish.
