1a.  Email from Rondi Frankel (28 May 2009):
There is a baptismal record for Maria Liberata Eulogia, daughter - possibly illegitimate - of Liberata Ceseña and William Sturgis Hinckley, at Mission San Jose, on 23 April 1848. The record number is 10827, found at the Huntington Library site mission records.

1b.  Email from Jeanne Rudy (6 Mar 2010):
Re:  Maria Liberata Eulogia Fisher:    I have seen the microfilm of the baptismal record, too (I accessed it at Santa Clara University Archives).  It is difficult to read, as are many microfilmed records ... the HINCKLEY confusion stems from a penciled notation made in the left-hand margin by someone trying to transcribe the surnames on the old records.  If you look closely at the baptismal description, you can see that her father is "Guillermo Ficher".  "Ficher" is a very common misspelling for Fisher, esp. in old Spanish records. Eulogia, as well as her younger brother, Fiacro (my gr-grandfather), were natural-born children of William Fisher and Liberata Cesena.

1c.  Email from Jeanne Rudy (31 Dec 2011):
...Eulogia and Daniel Rota... were childless.

This enumerator obviously hadn't a clue how the visitation numers were to be used, so there's some question as to just where this household begins and ends.  Eulogia should be 22, not 32, but this could easily be enumerator error, if not initially, then when transferring his field notes to the census schecdules.

"Navaretta Beattie" is a misspelling of Liberata PIATTI.  Eulogia (FISHER) ROTA was childless, so she is not Amelia's mother.  If Amelia is Liberata's granddaughter, then Eulogia would be her aunt.  Eulogia's father was born in either England or Massachusetts, not Mexico.

7.  Robert G. Fisher (of San Jose, CA).  nd.  Rancho del Refugio de la Laguna Seca and the Captain William Fisher Family (excerpt courtesy of the author's daughter, Jeanne Rudy; online at the Somos Primos web site; copies deposited at all Santa Clara County libraries).  Excellent compilation and certainly the best currently on the web. 
(LIBERATA) EULOGIA FISHER ROTA

Eulogia, the youngest daughter of Captain William and Liberata Fisher, was born March 11, 1848, in Coyote, CA.  She grew up and was educated in local San Jose schools.  Upon the death of her father, she inherited approximately 1,350 acres of the rancho.  Her share of the estate included the property of the old adobe and the stone building.

In 1865, Eulogia married Daniel Rota, an Italian, born January 19, 1837.  During their married life, she and Daniel operated a fine dairy and later ran the 12-Mile House in Coyote.  The hotel operation was later turned over to her mother, Liberata, and Liberata's husband, Caesar Piatti.

On June 8, 1876, Eulogia sold her acreage to her brother, Fiacro.  Upon Daniel's death at age 39 on July 9, 1876, she moved to San Jose, where she lived until her death on February 29, 1920, at the age of 72.  Eulogia was buried in the Oak Hill Cemetery on Monterey Highway in a plot where Daniel, her husband, and Caesar Piatti, her stepfather, are buried.
