The collection consists of over 1,500 items, including “correspondence, bills of sale, court transcripts, testimonies, surveys, notebooks, plats, land grants, maps, petitions, and other papers relating to Pintado’s duties as alcalde, commandant, and surveyor general.” The collection has been crucial to our understanding of the ownership and sale of lands in Florida at the time.In 1817, Pintado was transferred to Havana, Cuba where he worked as a military engineer and lived with his wife, Eulalia Balderas until his death in 1829.
