      1774 [1773? - JSR - 2013] - Rivera's Recruits for Monterey and Their Families.
      The second group to come to Alta California in 1774 [1773? - JSR - 2013] included recruit replacements for Monterey, some with families.

      This soldier recruit list was published by Los Californianos in its Vol 4, #5, May and June 1972 issue of "Noticias para Los Californianos." ... The number before each soldier is the number of persons in his family. No list of the families has been found, but one can be suggested from the known wives and children old enough to travel. Asterisks have been added for those who continued in service into Spain's War with England, 1779-1783.
