I was pleased to read the message regarding your Pico
As for Santiago de la Cruz Pico, he was born in 1732 at
San Javier de Cabazan, Sinaloa. He along with his wife
Maria Jacinta Labastida and five children (among them the
father of Governor Pio Pico and your ancestor, Jose Miguel
Pico) traveled from Sinaloa to Alta California with the
famous Anza Expedition during 1775-1776.
It has also been asserted by many scholars that the Mexican
Picos descend from the Italian Pico della Mirandolas, whose
family castle is still standing.
I hope this information helps.
