      BIOGRAPHY
      Felipe Romero Born c. 1721 at Rio Chico, Sonora, the son of Manuel Romero and Agustina Leon,
      died post-1789 [1768; California Archive, vol. 5, p. 41; AGNM, Provincias Internas, vol. 7, exp. 11, fol. 109v.] (Juana Linan).
      Romero was a mestizo [California Archive, vol. 5, p. 41 - Romero mistakenly called Luis in this copy of parts of the original document, but facts fit Felipe].
      Enlisted at Loreto in 1740 [AHBCS, Economico, document 6], was part of Padre Consag's military escort during his 1746 exploration to the mouth of the Rio Colorado [Barco, Historia Natural, p. 370].
      Romero retired in the 1760's, but was made sergeant of a militia company at Real de Santa Ana in 1768. He also received a Galvez land grant in 1768, and the next year got title to the lands of Mision de San Luis Gonzaga when it was closed and the neophytes moved to Todos Santos {1768; AHBCS, Economico, document 6]...
