Notes: Matías Gallo was born in Cantabria, Spain, about 1744. He was one of the first group of Querétaran friars to come to Sonora after the Jestuit expulsion in 1768. Although he was at Pitic from then until his departure in 1775, he evidently was at either Santa Ana or San Ignacio helping Father Zuñiga for awhile in 1778 (as seen by two known baptisms and a marriage that he performed at Santa Ana, or at San Ignacio on behalf of Santa Ana residents). Father Gallo died in January of 1781.
