Did you know Eliodoro?


Have a look at this new page I made to honor the memory of an old prospector who touched the heart of all who knew him, Eliodoro Arce of El Desengaño y Tinaja de Yubay: https://vivabaja.com/eliodoro/

One hell of an interesting story
He lived in a hut but he was so rich in many ways
Whish I could have met and learned from him.

The outpouring from the Arce and other families over their affection for 'Uncle Eliodoro' is nothing short of amazing...

Last night, from his niece currently in Ensenada, came this photo and more history... now added to the webpage.

Fantastic job putting this together David. The Arce family has such a rich and interesting history on the peninsula and it's wild to think that Eliodoro, who wanted to checkout and live a solitary life, has become a big part of that history.

Well done.

Glad you like it!

I am writing a summary of the Arce family origins in Baja California, taken from Harry Crosby's 1981 'Last of the Californios' as he researched Tacho Arce's family line.

Posted on my 'BajaMissions' Facebook group last weekend, under a photo of Eliodoro:

One of the many interesting families in Baja California are the Arce Family members. Some of you have been reading my page about Eliodoro Arce at www.vivabaja.com/Eliodoro , a page that keeps growing with new additions and photos from Eliodoro's vast family.

The first Arce in Baja California was Juan de Arce, in 1698. Juan was born in England in/around 1670. He became a Spanish soldier and came to the new mission of Loreto from Villa de Sinaloa, to which he returned in 1701.

The next Arce to cross the gulf to Baja California was José Gabriel de Arce (in 1751) and later, his brother, Sebastián Constantino de Arce (before 1764).

Sebastián had a son, baptized in 1764 at Mission San Ignacio: Ignacio María Arce. Ignacio grew up to become a soldier on the peninsula. In 1789, he was guarding Mission Santo Domingo where he married María Mónica Aguilar.

The next year, they had a son and named him Ignacio Buenaventura Arce. Mónica died the day following his birth. The new baby would become close to his step-mother, María de Jesús Romero.

The Arce Family moved south and we learn that Buenaventura Arce married Romualda Murillo and were godparents at a baptism in 1816, at Mission Santa Rosalia de Mulegé. Romualda's parents lived in Loreto, where her father was a ship builder.

By 1818 the Buenaventura Arce Family was living in San Ignacio.
Between 1825 and 1839, Buenaventura Arce had acquired many ranchos, including San Francisco de la Sierra, Santa Marta, and San Carlos.

When the last Dominican padre at Mission San Ignacio died (Felix Caballero, mysteriously) on August 3, 1840, it was Don Buenaventura Arce who claimed all the mission buildings and was the 'boss' of the town.

More to come!
(History from Harry Crosby and his 1981 book, 'Last of the Calfornios'.)
