About Don Jose de Araneta
Don Jose de Araneta • Chronology: Don Jose de Araneta, was born in the province of Gipuzkoa, Basque region of Northern Spain. He joined the Spanish expedition to the West Indies, Mexico, and Peru. During the Manila - Acapulco (Galleon Trade), Jose de Araneta arrived in Manila, Philippines from Acapulco, Mexico aboard the Spanish Galeón "La Sacra Familia".
n 1725, Don Jose joined the first Spanish expedition forces to Mindanao. A passage qouted from the book Islas Filipinas: Mindanao Vol. 11, by Benito Francia and Julian Gonzales Parrado, translated from the Chabacano dialect by Michael Mastura establishes two facts. First, Jose de Araneta served the Spanish Politico - Military Government based at Zamboanga City. Second, he served as the interpreter of the Spanish Colonial Government and the Sultan of Maguindanao along with Placido Alberto de Saavedra. Another passage from the book revealed that in 1746, Jose de Araneta was executed in Sulugan, Mindanao, nowadays known as Anuling in Cotabato. However, there are conflicting information drawn from translations of various documents pertaining to him.
