Juan Bautista de Anza National Historic Trail

 Enlisted soldier Jose Vicente Feliz, his wife Maria, and their children were among the thirty Anza Expedition families. Maria was one of eight women who were pregnant. On October 23, 1775, the first night after leaving Tubac, tragedy struck the family when Maria died giving birth. Feliz and his six children resumed their journey, arriving to San Francisco in June 1776.

Jose Feliz remained at the Presidio of San Francisco until 1781 when he was called to oversee the establishment of a new town, El Pueblo de la Reina de Los Angeles. In 1787, he was appointed Comisionado of Los Angeles - the highest authority. In return for his services, Spain awarded him the area upstream of the pueblo, Rancho Los Feliz, a portion of which later became Griffith Park.
