According to additional information provided on 12/2011 by Richard Carrico, a member of the E.H. Davis Project Scholar Advisory Committee: Angel Quilp was a highly knowledgeable elder from Mesa Grande who served as a consultant to both Ed Davis and John P. Harrington. Harrington’s notebooks have several photos of Angel in the back country. His name (Quilp) is derived from Kwitlp an important clan associated with Pa’mu and Mesa Grande. This clan appears in mission records circa 1775-1820 as Quilp, Quilpc, Kwitip and so on.
