NOTES

[1] Harry Chacanaca, like many listed here, was of native American ancestry. He was born Jan. 8, 1900, and died Feb. 28, 1964. He was the son of Jose "Joe" Chacanaca; his mother's maiden name was Castia. The Chacanacas lived primarily in the Castaic area. According to his World War I draft card, Harry was a laborer for Charles Kellog of Saugus. The 1930 Census for Soledad Township (i.e., the SCV) lists him as a state highway worker. Harry married Mabel May and had two children, Clyde H. and Charles C. Chacanaca.
