Biographical/Historical note

Margarita Delbrook Villa (1913-2011) was a 6th generation descendant of Presidio soldiers Jose Dominguez and Victorino Feliz. She was born in Santa Barbara and lived there all her life. She married Leroy Villa, also a descendant of Spanish soldier Juan Jose Villa, in 1932. The couple had four children: Leroy, William, Therese, and Marjorie. Margarita Villa did extensive family genealogical research on the early founding families of Santa Barbara. She was a docent at the Santa Barbara Historical Society and the Presidio and was a founding member of Los Descendientes de Santa Barbara, begun in 1986. She was also a member of Los Californianos, and Los Pobladores 200 de Los Angeles. Villa created a family history called Footprints of the Past: Family Memories of Leroy W. and Margarita D. Villa. Volume II documents her married life and travels with Leroy, as well as provides photos, pedigree charts, and additional information about their ancestors.
