Biographical/Historical note

Antonio Galindo has many reciepts recording the purchase of land in California and the purchase of beasts of burden. He is perhaps the son of Cristomo Galindo, at San Jose in 1841. Cristomo married Jacoba Bernal, and had 5 children, one named Antonio, born in 1826. Cristomo also had a daughter, Ana Maria, who married J.A. Forbes. (Bancroft. California Pioneer Register, p.154.)
