  • Notes 
    • Jose Antonio Lopez was a hacendado. "The word hacendado refers to Mexican ranchers who had received large land grants on which they maintained big stock-raising operations. It has strong social connotations of power and grandeur, as these men ruled over the families as well as the economics of their large estates."
