    Scope and Content

    Cayetano Juárez was born at the Presidio of Monterey, the seventh son of Joaquín Juárez. After a period of military service, mainly on expeditions against marauding Indians, he received his discharge in 1836. He married María de Jesús, daughter of Francisco Higuera, and settled with his family on the Rancho Tulucay (in the Napa Valley) which he received by grant in 1841. Title to this was confirmed to him by the United States and a patent, in President Buchanan's name, was issued in 1861.
    A small group of his papers was given to the Bancroft Library by his great-granddaughters, Mrs. Viviene Juarez Rose and Mrs. Dolores Juarez Unger, in August, 1960. These have been placed in two portfolios.
