Michael White and Eulalia Perez De Guillen

A big shout out to Roberta from Latino Heritage for coming up with these two pictures. She is pretty sure that the picture of Michael White, who was of course, Miguel Blanco, was drawn by Clarence Ellsworth.

Next up is Banco's formidable mother-in-law Eulalia Perez de Guillen. That photo was owned by her great-great-great granddaughter, Victoria Cordova, and it is in the Bancroft Library at Berkeley. http://bancroft.berkeley.edu/

Now all of this conclusively points to what I was speculating about before – that the photo above is of the Blanco family and it was taken before June 8, 1878, when Dona Eulalia passed on. We may never know her age – 143 108, … probably younger, but we do know what she looked like, thanks to Roberta.

Miguel Blanco is clearly the 4th person from the left, and Dona Eulalia is the lady sitting in front. Maybe the lady to the left of Miguel is his wife, Maria del Rosaria Guillen.
