|Maria Jesus and Winnall Dalton. Ronstadt, p. 67.|
Dalton arranged for Federico Ronstadt to get an education and taught him some French. He also encouraged him to learn music, which set Ronstadt on a path that he eventually became a noted band leader in Tucson in addition to running his own business. According to Ronstadt, when Concepcion Suastegui and her family moved to Los Angeles, she became acquainted with Guadelupe Zamorano and her friends, which is how Maria Jesus was introduced to Winnall Dalton. The story of Winnall's father Henry Dalton is a fascinating one, tied into the history of Los Angeles (see this story from KCET in 2013 on Henry Dalton and Guadelupe Zamorano). Records from Henry Dalton are now at the Huntington Library, as well as letters from Winnall Dalton describing the life of his father (published in 1915) at the California State Library in Sacramento.
