Source Notes

Sy Scholfield quotes "Commodore Alcaraz: First Victim of Philippine President Marcos" by Ernesto O. Rodriguez (1986), p. 111: "Alcaraz was born at high noon, Sunday, August 31, 1915, in the Parulan barrio, Quingua (now Plaridel), Bulacan."

Sunday would be a mistake as this date was a Tuesday. Same date of 31 August 1915 given in "Who's Who in California," Volume 14, 1983. Other resources give 15 August (which was a Sunday).

Plaridel, Bulacan, is now part of Metro Manila.
