181 Goicture: Either; Joachin Blaneo or his wife Antonia de Avero had
purchased the Ana Naranjo house from the heirs before 1763, in
which Pase it seems strange that she did not so state in her claim,
or attempt to produce some evidence of ownership,
Antonia de Avero, knowing that her husband had had charge of the
Ana Naranjo property for ten years before 1763, decided to claim
it as her property,
In any event, her heirs included it in their suit against Jesse
Fish, and it was included in the settlement made out of court
on February 27, 1814, covering the Ana Naranjo house and the
house of Fernando Rodriguez "el Gallego".
See Testamentary Proceedings, Incidentes a los autos .
Reel 6 Document 28 (El Esoribano January 1963 page 15)
The four heirs of Ana Naranjo all owned other property in 1764,
see Puente map.
Arnade did not pursue the Avero .story on to its conclusion on any
of the 3 houses claimed by Antonia.

RE: No. 45.. Salcedo. 1788..
Note: Moncrief Map. Shows what looks to be stone house directly across
from the de Hita place. With what looks like wooden house in Middle and
stone house next. These would be the 3 Rainsford places.
Note Puente's wording of these three on his map...
Stone...masonry....atone. .Apparently the middle one was different.
Perhaps Moncrief, too, wanted to show a difference.
But on BOTH for Alfonsa Averots ...STONE.
Jeffrey definitely makes it as IPBE as the Arrivas.
Now look at the blown up de Solis. (who was famous for his stretching
of blocks, which puts houses out of focus) and the three same houses
-are on Rainaford, still of stone.
NOTE on the south side of the Arrivas, the checkered house meaning wood...
All of this means that the Alphonsa Avero house was stone and stayed of
stone and was across from the de Hita except on the de Solis, whose blocks
are extended out of proportion.
And it means that the stone house of Antonia Avero south of Arrivas in
1763 was of stone, but pro 1769 was built of wood...
Note especially.. .All of the maps give space where Puente had the 2nd
Arrivas House. The one you did not restore or rebuild. They all indicate

(Notes of Mrs. E. Barnes)
Background on Ana de Naranjo:
Mother and father: Adjutant Alonso Naranjo of Seville, Spain and
Isabel de la Cruz, native of the town of St. Augustine, were married
on April 4, 1673 by Father Antonio Lorenzo Padilla.
They had betrothal ceremonies Feb. 25.
Captain Nicolas de Goyas and Captain Mateo Pacheco stood as witnesses.
Only other item on her: Ana de Naranjo...
Sat. April 14, 1753, Ana Maria Naranjo died. Dt. of the above.
Joachin Blanco was her executor. She was widow.
Ie: The Salcedo places
1st; Brief of the background.
Pedro Josef Saleedo was Regular Captain of the Royal Corps of the
Artillery and Commandant of the detachment stationed in St. Augustine.
April 20, 1786 recognition of his marriage was recorded in the
Cathedral Parish Records, said marriage having taken place in
Havana March 20, 1785. The bride was Maria Dolores Galam or
Maria Rodrigues.Galan. Full translation is in the Canova transcripts
pages 3 and ., 1784-1801 White Marriages.
Salcedo seems to miss the 1783 Census, the 1786 Census which was
probably taken before he arrived as I have not found him on either.
He was on the 1793 Census, however, No. 129.
So far I have found no children nor was there any registered on the
