Born in Italy in 1777, Desiderio Quina served the Spanish army in the Louisiana Infantry Regiment. He was later employed in Pensacola as an apothecary for the John Forbes Company where he married Margarita Bobe. His son Desiderio was born in 1817 and fought in the second Seminole War with a regiment of Alabama mounted volunteers. He opened a pharmacy on Government Street in Pensacola about 1842 and later earned a license to act as a physician.
