Source Notes

Castellano quotes the website of the "Association of Researchers of Malaga Archives" (http://asociacion-aiam.es/index.php/documentos/documentos-ilustres-malaguenos) the date given there is November 10, 1842. although the document does not show the year. That document indicated that he was born at "doce de la noche". common use in Spanish is that "doce de la noche" refers to the end of the day, not at the start, so 11 November 1842 at 0:00 is used.
