Tomás Guadalupe

The youngest of the Nicoleños who may have arrived in San Pedro on the schooner Peor es Nada, this boy was about five years old and was baptized as Tomás Guadalupe in the Los Angeles Plaza Church in December 1835. He appears to have lived with his godmother’s family in Los Angeles until 1859. Tomás Guadalupe was alive when the Lone Woman was brought from San Nicolas Island to Santa Barbara in 1853.
