Upon joining the Spanish Army at the end of 1784, Gonzalez was sent to serve in the city of New Orleans in the New World.Through his work as Indian Agent, Gonzalez was bestowed large areas of land in Pensacola by the Spanish Crown, where he settled as a cattle rancher. Gonzalez donated the land that became Plaza Ferdinand VII, where he opened a market in 1816.Upon the transfer of Florida from Spanish to United States rule, General Andrew Jackson appointed Gonzalez as Justice of the Peace and a Colonel in the American Army. Gonzalez died in his Pensacola home on March 8, 1838.
