Notes: Father Garrucho's mayordomo at Arivaca, he was killed there with his wife, María Trinidad Galana, his two-year-old daughter, María Rosalía Loreto, and his infant son on the morning of November 21, 1751. "On the 21st of November in this year of 1751, these Pimas rose in rebellion by order of their western chief, Luis of Saric, and killed the following people in various villages: …. Gaspar Stiger, Doctrinal Minister" December 28, 1751 - I arrived at Arivaca where I encountered no people. Everything was burned and there were nine dead bodies which I then buried. The only thing left in all of these looted villages is some corn and a few cattle. However, there were no tame horses or brood mares left anywhere.
