Death of Francisco Galindo

Francisco Galindo, the well-known capitalist and property owner, and one of the oldest and most prominent Spanish-American residents of Alameda county, died at 10 o'clock this morning at his home in Temecula. The deceased was a member of one of the oldest families that settled in California, he was born at the Presidio, Yerba Buena (now San Francisco) in 1824, and the greater part of his life has been spent in the vicinity of San Francisco bay.

Mr. Galindo has been twice married, his first wife being Manuela Pacheco, the daughter of Salvador Pacheco, .the well-known owner of the Pacheco grant in Contra Costa county. Of their six children four are living. They are John C. Galindo and Mrs. J. D- Miranda of Contra Costa county; Mrs. Mercedes Lathrop of Oakland, and Frank Galindo, who is now in Spain. His second wife was Inez Peralta, daughter of Manuel Peralta of the well- known Peralta family. Of their eight children six are now living, as follows: Vicente Galindo, Charlotte Galindo, Hubert Galindo, Jovita Galindo, Cresa Galindo and Alexander Galindo. The deceased also leaves two brothers, Augustine and Antonio, and two married sisters.

The estate left by Mr. Galindo lies mostly in Alameda and Contra Costa counties, and is estimated to be worth about $300,000. It Includes the Galindo Hotel property in this city and the magnificent residence at Temescal.

Mr. Galindo had been suffering from a disease of the liver, which nearly caused his death seven years ago, but although nearly sixty-six years of age at the time of his death, he was a man of remarkable vigor and energy up to a comparatively short time before his death. The funeral will take place next Monday, when a high requiem muss will be celebrated.
