Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
CSLA-32 consists of materials that Mrs. David S. (Betty) Forsyth collected on the Machado family, whose history in Los Angeles dates to the late 18th century, and on its Rancho La Ballona, which the Mexican government officially granted to the Machados and the Talamantes in 1839.
The Machado family has a distinguished history in Los Angeles, with a history in that city dating to 1797. In the 1820s, Augustín and Ygnacio Machado settled the Rancho La Ballona area, which served as a cattle ranch. The Mexican government confirmed the Machado ownership of the area through a grant to the family in 1839.
