Was Pedro's father the sailor from Acapulco who settled in Cavite? What is certain is that Felipa's grandfather was a sailor on a Spanish Galleon plying the Acapulco-Manila route. Another story from her was; in 1830 when Pedro Lozada was the Gobernadorcillio of Capiz(the town of Capiz is now Roxas City and Gobernadorcillo is equivalent to a mayor), he was forced to leave his estate in Capiz by rowing on a banca to attend a general meeting in Manila with the Alcade Mayor or suffer the punishment of lashing. The History of the Republic of the Philippines (Revised Edition by Gregorio F. Zaide and Sonia M. Zaide page 158) explains the hostilities between the Gobernadorcillos (mostly Creoles and Meztizos) and the Alcade Mayors (described as Peninsulares) and punishments. Also written on the same history book (page 233) is an event called the "Nineteen Martyrs of Aklan" when a Spanish Commander supressed a Filipio uprising. Twelve Filipino Commanders from Panay or Iloilo were executed on March 23, 1897 except for one because his beautiful wife, Fructosa Meren, kneeled and pleaded for his life. The spared Filipino Commander was Nicanor Gonzales, who happened to be the brother of Felipa's husband. It was during the "batil exodus from Capiz circa 1897" that Pedro Lozada, together with Felipa, Graciano and Valeriano fled in a batil to Cebu. Felipa's daugther Conching was 17 years old while her son Santiago was 25 years old at that time. Was Vicente left in Mambusao during the Philippine Revolution in Panay in 1897? The speculation is that it was at this time that Pedro, settled in Dumanjug. Pedro Lozada of Mambusao now became Pedro Lozada of Dumanjug. The question is if the father of Juanito Lozada of Mambusao was known to be Felipa's half-brother, who was their mother? Juanito was also married to Felipa's daugther, Conching. Franklin Gonzales was able to conclude that Pedro Lozada of Mambusao is the same Pedro Lozada of Dumanjug because both individuals were of the same age and both had a daugther named Felipa whose was a half-sister to Juanito's father. Franklin Alcopra Gonzales also connected Felipa's story with the events in our Philippine History.
