He owned five horses and one mule. (AGI, Guadalajara 515, Quaderno 1) According to his service record of April 5, 1773 at Tubac, he was twenty years old, which is off two years from his baptismal certificate. The following is from the Tubac Presidio Service Records as copied for the Tucson Presidio Records:

José Domingo Granillo, son of Salvador (Granillo) and María Manuela Sosa, native of Sóporii in the governmental jurisdiction of Sonora and living at this presidio. His occupation is laborer in the same district. His height is five feet, four inches. He is twenty of age. His religion is Apostolic Roman Catholic. Distinguishing characteristics are: black hair, brown eyes, swarthy complexion, beardless, black eyebrows. He began service as a soldier for an unlimited time at this presidio on April 5, 1773. Since he does not know how to sign his name, he made the sign of the cross after being advised that by so doing this document becomes legal and he is left without excuse. Don Juan María Oliva, Lieutenant of the said company was witness to the above.

This is an exact copy of the original located in the book of service records of this company in my charge, which I certify. Presidio of San Agustín del Tucson, September 22, 1793 Mariano de Urrea
