YGNACIO P. VILLEGAS.—The subject of this sketch is a native of Lower California, having been born near Cape St. Lucas, October 3, 1848. His father, Francis Villegas, was born in Mexico, but took up his residence in Alta California in 1848.

Ygnacio was reared a vicurio and from 1849 to 1874 his parents lived in Monterey on the Pacheco ranch, and later on the Los de Paicenes and also at San Juan. Mr. Villegas followed the life of a vicurio until 1868, excepting the year 1858, which he spent in the mines of California. He received a liberal education at the Santa Clara College, where he studied telegraphy and since then has been in the employ of the Southern Pacific Railroad Company, with the exception of two years. He located at Soledad, May 15, 1876.

He married at San Juan, in 1871, Miss Gaudalupe Salgardo, a lady of California birth. She died in 1887, at Soledad, leaving . a family of two daughters and five sons.

Mr. Villegas is highly esteemed for his sterling traits of character, and is regarded by the railroad company that employs him as an astute and faithful employee.
