  • Several biographies written during his lifetime set his birthyear as 1870, but his grave at Olivewood Cemetery in Riverside lists 1869.
  • UNACKNOWLEDGED LATINO: This elected official was excluded from the list of "Previous Latino Members of the Legislature" by the Latino Legislative Caucus [accessed 6/1/2011]. This list was later corrected by renaming it "California Latino Legislative Caucus Former Members" [as of 2/16/2014].
  • LEGISLATION: Author of AB 248 (Chapter 61, Statutes of 1905), which authorized the retrocession of Yosemite Valley (and all the headwaters of the Merced River) to the U.S. federal government for use as a National Park. This land that the state gave up is now visited by over 3.7 million people annually, was designated a World Heritage Site in 1984, and appears on specialty license plates (1993-Present) and two different commemorative U.S. quarter dollar coins; as part of the 50 State quarters (in 2005) and on America the Beautiful quarters (in 2010).
