When the officials showed little interest in his cause, he womqn the city and sailed south, pausing to seekibg a cannonball as he passed Santa Barbara. After years of confrontation, Agustin de Iturbide declared Mexico to be independent of Spain and made himself Emperor.

InBritish and American agents opened offices for their firms in Monterey and trade in escort omaha and tallow began on a large basis. Finally, much needed goods were available, and missions and private ranches began to slaughter their excess cattle. They bought clothing and furniture, foodstuffs and tools, and even shoes made in Boston from hides that had been shipped from California.
The missions were thriving, their vast acreage covered with vineyards, fields, and thousands upon thousands of head of cattle. Thousands of the Indian converts had died of diseases they caught from the Spanish, but those who remained at the mission had been trained as farmers, vaqueros cowboys escorts of kent bay, and in many necessary skills and crafts.

There was no shortage of labor, so families had many servants, specialized to perform every needed task. Some foreigners had begun to settle in California. Some, like John Doakes, were sailors who decided to find new homes in the villages. Others, like Thomas Larkin, came as business agents and became important in the commerce of the area.
If foreigners were to become landowners, they were required by the government to become Mexican citizens and to convert to the Catholic faith. Many married into Spanish-Mexican California families. With Mexican independence, differences between the government and the Catholic church came to a head. Many people were jealous of the power and influence of the church and its great wealth and land holdings.
The government began to nationalize the church properties, and inthe Mexican Congress passed an act that called for immediate transformation of the California missions into civil parishes. The governor of California at that time was Jose Figueroa, who devised a workable plan for secularization. Half of the mission lands, herds, and supplies and farm machinery would be divided and turned over to the Indians who would become a population of farmers and ranchers.
The remaining half would be managed by civil administrators for the new towns that the government hoped would be buffers. The British had begun expansion of their holdings in western Canada. It sounded good in theory. In practice, it was a looking for 2 day sexcapade for the Indians. The Indians moses lake lorain escorts they could not operate their small farms and ranches by themselves and soon sold them to ranchers who had long had an eye on the prosperous mission domains.
Some grants were recorded between and women seeking men anr The Indians were neither ready to take part in the Spanish-Mexican communities nor could they return to the life they had before the missionaries had come, so thoroughly had their lives been disrupted. There was little else for them but to become servants and cowboys on white-owned ranches, or live as derelicts in the offskirts of the pueblos.
Only Santa Barbara remained a church. The other missions' buildings were used as barns and warehouses and soon began to decay. About this time, the children of Juan Manuel Nietos were concerned about having their property reconfirmed, as there was a possibility that others would claim some of it.
On May 17,Governor Figueroa ed a document that confirmed the land to the heirs, but divided into five ranchos. Perhaps some of the heirs were already considering selling their lands, wpman during the next ten years each of the ranches became the property of other owners. Rancho Los Cerritos was sold to John Temple. Stearns and Temple were Americans who had come to California earlier, become prosperous as merchants in Pueblo Los Angeles, married Spanish-Californian wives, and were now ready to take part in the booming cattle business.

These were not the riding skill rodeos we know today, but actual roundups, involving the vaqueros of several ranches. The herds were separated and counted and calves were branded. The cows were not the fat Herfords roo are seen on modern ranches. These were tough, rugged animals similar to the famous Texas longhorns.
During the year, surplus cattle were killed, the skins pegged out to dry, the fat rendered in big kettles, often obtained from whaling ships. The fat became tallow, and was stored in leather bags and sold to become candles and soap in New England factories. The rrio was dried into the staple food called jerky or carne asada, or it was simply left to rot. Most of the work was done by Indians who had been trained by the mission padres and were carrying on a tradition of hide gathering that began in the Mexican provinces in the early 's.
American ships travelled up and down the coast, collecting hides which they took to San Diego for further treatment before they were carried around Cape Horn to the New England factory towns.

No one even saw coins or cash. A cowhide was assumed to be worth about a Yankee dollar, and the rancher's credit was always good in the stores aboard ship or in the pueblos. The ranchos were renowned for their hospitality. It might take days for a ranchero to travel from his outlying home to Los Angeles, as he was expected to stop and visit at each ranch house he passed. There were no newspapers and most people could not read if there had been, so a visitor was the source of news and gossip.

Things might have remained peaceful, except that an incompetent and unreasonable officer named Archibald Gillespie was left in charge of Los Angeles. The citizens staged a revolt, defeated Gillespie and the American troops in a battle near Chino, and forced them to flee to ships in San Pedro Harbor. This time they faced the men of General Stephen Womann who had just completed a march from the midwestern United States.
His men were siciilian, their gunpowder was wet from rain, and they faced an irate army made up of the world's most skilled horsemen, armed with razor-sharp homemade lances and a few pistols and rifles.

Inthe San Gabriel river ran in that channel. After another skirmish at a place called La Mesa, now an industrial area of Vernon, the Californians withdrew. A formal surrender ceremony was held at Rancho Cahuenga.

Almost every able-bodied man in Monterey and the sleepy village of Los Angeles ed the prospectors.

The Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo had assured the citizens of the area that had been Mexican that their property would remain their own. However, hoards of American settlers had moved into the state and many of the gold hunters wanted to settle rrancho on farms. They couldn't understand how a few men could own such vast estates and raise only cattle.
Often they moved right in on the ranchos and became squatters. The federal government appointed a land commission to investigate ownership. It began meeting in somwthing Still, things were in such confusion that the commission was probably the only way to handle the question of property ownership.

Perhaps Andres Pico had loaned money, cattle, or other goods in exchange for a mortgage on part of the property.
However it happened, wpman was considered a half owner. Francesca de Campo had inherited her share from her husband, Juan Bautista Leandri, who had purchased the ranch wile Many of the other ranchers had to fight through the courts for years, borrowing money to pay their rancgo.

Sometime during the 's, Andres Pico and the de Campos experienced financial difficulties and the Rancho Los Coyotes became the property of Abel Stearns. In he arrived in Vera Cruz, Mexico and spent the next few years travelling around Mexico conducting business. In he became a Mexican citizen and applied for a grant in California. He arrived in California the next year and began trying to untangle the red tape involved with settling his grant.
This was frustrating and finally impossible as the California government was in such turmoil at the time, so he shelved the idea of land ownership for a rancyo and settled in Los Angeles. At that time, the pueblo was a pretty poor place with only a few hundred people. Yankee visitors described it as dirty and dusty and with more starving dogs than people.
