Miguel Pacheco was born
about 1822 in Tubac, Sonora, son of Ignacio Antonio Pacheco and Rita Duran. In
1831, Miguel was living with his parents in Tucson (McCarty 1981:5, household

(Officer 1989:182). On 29 August 1845, Miguel and Dolores Acedo were godparents

AHS/SAD p. 80).
In 1860, Miguel worked as a blacksmith in Tucson (1860 Census, New Mexico, Dona Ana County, Tucson p. 15). He owned real estate valued at $500 and personal property worth $500. His wife could not read or write. On 15 July 1860, Pacheco purchased William H. Kirkland's Upper Rancho (Pima County DRE 1:98). Miguel purchased a lot in Tucson from Dolores Herran on 9 October 1861 (MS 1072 #11). In 1864, the Pacheco family lived in Tucson where Miguel worked as a carpenter (1864 Census, A. T., Pima County, Tucson lines 1168-1172). He owned real estate valued at $500 and personal property worth $100. Next door lived Ignacia Saens, perhaps Guadalupe's sister.
Miguel died between 31 October 1865 and 2 January 1866 (Pima County Book of Records May 17, 1864-Dec. 28, 1865, pp. 59-60). His will was written in Spanish and was probated on 19 June 1866 (Pima County Book of Wills, 1:1). He left an estate valued at $3,134.
In 1866, Guadalupe and her children Juana and Marcus were living in Tucson along with two other Pachecos aged 10 to 21, Eufemio and Ygnacio (1866 Census, A.T., Pima County, Tucson lines 297-301). In March 1867, Guadalupe and her children Juan, Marcos, Eugenia, and Ygnacio lived in Tucson (1867 Census, A. T., Pima County, Tucson lines 87-91). In June 1870, Guadalupe worked as a farmer in Tucson. Her family's real estate was valued at $3000 and their personal possessions at $2000. Guadalupe lived with her children (Juana, Marcus, Oguino, Ygnacia), the three oldest attending school, and a probable relative, Theodora Seis, who was a 21-year-old seamstress (1870 Census A.T., Pima County, Tucson p. 29).
Rafael Pacheco was born about 1820 in Sonora. He was married to Carmil XXXX. Carmil was born circa 1825. In 1870, Rafael worked as a carpenter in Tucson. He owned real estate valued at $500 and personal property valued at $250 (1870 Census, A.T., Pima County, Tucson p. 4).
Ramon Pacheco was born circa 1820 in Tucson, Sonora, the son of Ignacio Antonio Pacheco and Rita Duran. In 1831, Ramon was living with his parents and siblings in Tucson (McCarty 1981:5, household #3). He would later recall the yearly journey by Tucson residents to the San Pedro River where they cultivated land under the guard of the Presidio soldiers. Large quantities of grain were harvested and returned to Tucson (Affidavit of Ramon Pacheco, 17 June 1886, Cochise County, Arizona). On 4 September 1844, Ramon and Maria de Jesus Pacheco were godparents to Maria Toribia Castro, daughter of Jesus Castro and Rafaela Burruel (Magdalena Church Records, UAL Microfilm 811 Roll 1 #16). Ramon signed a letter enacting three resolutions on 9 January 1845 (Officer 1989:182). He was married about 1845 to Gertrudis Herreras. Gertrudis was born circa 1824-1825 in Sonora, Mexico, possibly the daughter of Jose Herreras and Juana Elias (McCarty 1981:5, household #2). A female child by that name was living in the household next door to the one where Ramon Pacheco was living. On 2 September 1845, Ramon and Getrudis were godparents to an Apache girl Maria Salome (Magdalena Church Records, Microfilm 811, UAL #41). On 6 January 1848, the couple were godparents to Jose Reyes Demetrio Romero, son of Juan Romero and Trinidad Leon (Magdalena Church Records, UAL Microfilm 811 Roll 1).
On 19 August 1852, Ramon purchased a piece of land on the west side of Calle del Correo from Guadalupe Santa Cruz for $50 (MS 1072 #44). On 15 November 1855, Ramon sold his 1/7 share of a house lot that he had received from his father to his brother Miguel for one-seventh of a wagon (MS 1072, #10). In July 1858, Ramon and Petra Santa Cruz were godparents to Maria Luciana Green, daughter of Theodore Green and Concepcion Telles (Magdalena Church Records, UAL Microfilm 811 Rol1 1).
In 1860, Ramon worked as a blacksmith in Tucson (1860 Census, New Mexico, Dona Ana County, Tucson p. 15-16). He owned real estate worth $400 and personal property valued at $15000. Gertrudis could not read or write, however, the couple's three children were in school. Ramon had a meteorite anvil in his shop, apparently finding it in the Santa Rita mountains. Mr. Pacheco was a worthy Blacksmith and had a shop in town...The meteorite weighed four to five hundred pounds and was four feet long and a foot high...By sitting it upright in the ground, it would answer very well the purpose of an anvil in his blacksmith shop. Which he did (Arizona Citizen 15 January 1875 2:4 [GET]).
In 1864, Ramon had become a merchant with real estate valued at $3000 and personal property worth $3000 (1864 Census, A. T., Pima County, Tucson lines 1188-1192). On 23 July 1862, Ramon purchased a piece of land from Francisco Dias and his wife Bernarda Gonzales for $200 (MS 1072 #45). The land was on the north side of Calle de la Mission, adjacent to another parcel he owned. On 17 February 1866, Ramon and Gertrudes were godparents for Jose R. Elias, son of Cornelio Elias and Jesus Pacheco and for Francisco Oury, son of William Oury and his wife (XXXX) Garcia (Tucson Catholic Church Baptisms 1:32 #23; 1:31 #21). In March 1867, Ramon and Gertrudes lived with their three children (Jesus, Guadalupe, and Cesario) in Tucson (1867 Census, A.T., Pima County, Tucson lines 43-47).
By 1870, Ramon was a grocer with real estate worth $3500 and personal property valued at $4000 (1870 Census, A. T., Pima County, Tucson p. 27). He lived with his wife Gertrudis and daughter Guadalupe in Tucson. In November 1870, while hauling lumber from the Santa Rita Mountains, Pacheco was attacked by the Apache who captured eight yoke of oxen, two mules, and a horse valued at $1500 (Weekly Arizona Enterprise 10 March 1892). In August 1872 the Weekly Citizen reported (31 August): The Apaches stole eight mules from Ramon Pacheco near San Xavier last Saturday. He was engaged with his train to carry the freight belonging to Captain Sumner's troop to Calabasas. A detachment from Captain Sumner's troop followed the Indians to the Santa Catalina Mountains north of Tucson without being able to recover the property. It is a hard blow to Mr. Pacheco who can ill afford the loss.
Ramon and Guadalupe lived with their son Jesus and their daughter Guadalupe in Tucson in 1880 (1880 Census A.T., Pima County, Tucson, E.D. 5 p. 259A). Ramon was working as a laborer and Jesus was a clerk in a store. Ramon moved to Tres Alamos in 1886 and ranched there until his return to Pima County in 1894 (Pima County Great Registers). Gertrudis died on 18 June 1893. Ramon died on 9 February 1900: Don Ramon Pacheco died at his residence on McCormick street last night at the age of about ninety years. He was born in Tucson and knew the place from its inception as a Mexican village to its present metropolitan conditions. The old gentleman was vigorous and hearty until a few days ago and was proud of the Americanized appearance of the city. He was an encyclopedia of local history and had a wide circle of friends (Arizona Daily Citizen 10 February 1900, 4:2)

Refugio Pacheco was born circa 1836-1837 in Tucson, Sonora, Mexico, son of Guadalupe (Ascencion?)

In July 1858 in Tucson, Refugio and Timotea Lisarrage were godparents to Juan Silva, son of Luiza Silva (Magdalena Church Records, UAL Microfilm 811 Roll 1). Refugio was married prior to 1860 to Paula Cruz. Paula was born circa 1838-1839 in Tucson, Sonora, Mexico, probable daughter of Pascual Cruz and Francisca Grijalva.
Refugio purchased a house and lot from Pedro Burruel on 8 December 1861, paying two horses and five fanega of wheat (MS 1072 AHS/SAD #23). He purchased a field property from Ursula Solares on 14 June 1862 (Pima County DRE 1:44-45). In 1864, the couple farmed in Tucson (1864 Census, A. T., Pima County, Tucson lines 929-932).

The couple were padrinos for Maria Andrea Cota, daughter of Florentino and Gertrudis Cota, on 1 December 1869 (Tucson Catholic Church Baptisms 1:112).
On 30 January 1870, the couple were godparents to Helena Ramirez, daughter of Maria Ramirez (Tucson Catholic Church Baptisms 1:117). A week later, on 7 February 1870, the couple were godparents to Maria Romalda Adelaida Cruz, daughter of Jesus Cruz and Concepcion Ramirez (Tucson Catholic Church Baptisms 1:117). In March 1870, the family was farming (1870 Census, A. T., Pima County, Tucson p. 75). Refugio owned real estate valued at $2500 and personal property worth $2000. Living with the family were Carmel Mungia (a 4-year-old boy), Francisco Amploma (a 7-year-old boy), and Carmel Amploma (a 12-year-old boy working as a domestic servant).
Refugio was appointed a member of the Board of Supervisors of Pima County on 12 April 1873 (McClintock, J. H., 1916, Arizona, The Youngest State, Chicago, p. 88; Plaza of the Pioneers p. 34). His will was made on 23 September 1873 and he died five days later (Pima County Book of Wills 1:45; Tucson Citizen 12 April 1873). His wife Paula was named the sole executor. A Probate Order for his estate was made in March 1880 (Pima County Misc. Records 2:79).
In June 1880, Paula lived with her six children in Tucson (1880 Census A.T., Pima County, ED 41 p. 354B).
Paula died prior to 10 February 1885 (Refugio Pacheco file, AHS/SAD; Pima County Misc. Records 4:1; MS 1155 box 40 file 555 says 1884).
