Baltazar Baca was born in New Mexico and was, in 1769, a resident of the Plaza of Belen. He asked for a tract of land about three leagues from the pueblo of Laguna, and about a league and a half from the Encinol.
Being "descended from the conquerors of this province," Governor Mendinueta was induced to grant his request and he was placed in possession of the tract known as "San José del Encinol" by Don Antonio Sedillo, chief alcalde and war-captain of the pueblo of Laguna. In the act of possession it appears that there was "an outside ranch belonging to an Acoma Indian." He had two sons.
