Local Daughters of American Revolution rededicate grave marker for namesake Amador

The Tri-Valley's José María Amador Chapter Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) rededicated a DAR marker on the grave of their namesake on Oct. 13 in Old St. Mary Cemetery in Gilroy.

José María Amador was a Californio soldier, explorer, rancher and gold miner who built several adobes at his Rancho San Ramon headquarters near Alamilla Springs in what is now Dublin.

The local DAR chapter is named for Amador (instead of a Revolutionary War patriot) because chapters located in states admitted to the Union after 1825 may be named for territorial historic events, geographic sites or names of prominent early area pioneers.
