According to additional information provided on 12/2011 by Richard Carrico, a member of the E.H. Davis Project Scholar Advisory Committee: Jose (Jessie) Antonio Morales was the husband of Felicita Duro, who was the daughter of Panto Duro, leader of San Pasqual 1838-1874. Morales may have been a Luiseno and he and Felicita lived in the San Pasqual Valley long after the village was destroyed and the people moved out in 1878. Morales and Felicita lived at different spots including on the old Mannasse Ranch in San Pasqual. She is buried at the San Pasqual Indian Cemetery and he may be also.
