About Pedro Poblete Aragon

Pedro Poblete Aragon was a resident of Baler, Tayabas and figured in the "Siege of Baler". He was mentioned in this account:

"The disease such as beriberi and dysentery overcome them and later took its toll. One of its first fatalities was Fray Candido Gomez Carreño, the parish priest who succumbed to it on 25 September. While he lay dying, a truce was arranged. During this time a Baler resident, Pedro Aragon, better known in Baler as husband of Zenaida Molina, presented himself and requested for allowance to talk to the priest. He had explained to Captain Las Morenas that he had been a prisoner in Manila, for his involvement in the assault of Don Mota’s detachment. He also explained that he had been set free after the signing of the Pact of Biacnabato, and was instructed on important matters to see the priest of having the priest convince them to surrender. Las Morenas told him that Fray Carreño was dying and had no change of speaking with him. Pedro left despondently."

During the Philippine Revolution, he was imprisoned by the colonial authorities for being a suspected member of the Katipunan; he would die in captivity. After his death, his family was cast into extreme poverty, surviving on subsistence farming.
