Here he wedded Josefa Soberanes, a daughter of one of the distinguished early citizens of this coast. She is still living and is now in her eightieth year. Joseph A. was reared in his native town and educated in her schools. He has made his home in or near Soledad for many years, a portion of the time engaged in ranching.
