A native of Spain, Don Manuel Gonzalez joined the army at Madrid and was sent to New Orleans. After his discharge he was granted passage through the Choctaw and Creek Nations to Pensacola. At Pensacola, he was a successful cattle rancher. He opened a market on Plaza Ferdinand in 1816. With the transfer of Florida to the United States, he was appointed Justice of the Peace and Quarter Master General for the Florida Militia.
