What was the name of the first child
born in San Diego to American parents?

Considering the nationwide brouhaha over Arizona's immigration law and anchor babies, I thought digging deep down into San Diego history might be interesting.

In 1846-47, a Mormon Battalion marched from Iowa to San Diego to help secure California during the Mexican-American War. Captain Jesse D. Hunter was accompanied by his wife, and in April 1847, Lydia gave birth to the first American child born in San Diego. The proud parents named him Diego in honor of his birthplace. Lydia died just a few weeks later, apparently of typhoid fever. 


If you're looking for a great real estate agent in San Diego, well,

I'm available 24/7, so feel free to contact me by phone or email.

Hi Jim, first the quilt is beautiful. Second, did you pose Zoey like that?  It is a great pose.

Hi, Jim. San Diego has so much history that you have a lot of material for your posts!

Hey, everyone!

Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

I'm trying to follow up on these older posts like this one to see if anyone had any questions or if I really need to respond to anyone's comments.

I will read all the comments and respond to any that need a response, but since this post is rather old, rather than making comments here in my post to each and every one of you, I'll just let everyone know that I have read all the comments and if there are any questions, I'll answer those in comments below this one. Otherwise I'll simply post this comment and then head over to your blogs soon to visit and do some reading and commenting. I hope you'll have a nice welcome mat out for me!

Don't forget to let your cat come out to play with all the other ActiveRain kitties. Your cat-friendly dogs can come, too!

If you need a great cat book, get yourself a copy of Peg Silloway's The Cat Lover's Book of Days.

Hope all is well with everyone.

Liz - We never have to pose Zoey the Cool Cat. She does quite well on her own. Quilts are due to Russel. His grandmother used to make quilts for all the kids, grandkids, and great grandkids.
