In the 1880 census, the Ortega family is in Los Jarales. Atanacio is a sheep herder, and Cecilia is keeping house. They are living next to a Felipe Ortega and his family, who is likely a relative. Living with Atanacio and Cecilia are their children, as well as a Juan Jose Castillo who is described as a step brother, who is a sheep herder, who happened to have been shot in the knee cap of his left leg! Wow. I wonder what the story behind that is! I’m not sure who’s family he is a part of, whether it’s the Ortega family or the Velasquez family. I included the couple living next door to them here since they are also Castillo’s and could be possibly related as well.
