The original owner of Doña Aurora’s house was Zeneida Molina, who married Pedro Aragon. No records exist for the birth date of Maria, their oldest daughter, but documents exist showing that their second daughter, Emilia, was born in the house in April 1877, verifying the existence of the house at least to that date.
Aurora, their youngest daughter, was born in the same house on Feb. 19, 1888.
When the Spaniards burned the town in the twilight of the Philippine Revolution, Aurora was forced to take refuge in the church during the Siege of Baler. She was about 9 years old then.
