Regarding Casimiro Chowell J.. Casimiro Chowell Jurado (b. May 4, 1775, Mexico City - d. November 28, 1810, Guanajuato) was a Mexican mining expert and manager of the Valenciana mine in Guanajuato. He joined the insurgent cause as a colonel of an infantry regiment based in Guanajuato. After the storming of the Alhóndiga de Granaditas and the massacre of the Spanish and other Royalists by the insurgents on September 28, 1810 he was placed in charge of maintaining order in the city. Less than two months later, on November 25, he was apprehended by the reorganized Spanish forces led by Félix Calleja. He and fellow insurgent Ramón Fabié were hung in this location on November 28, near the same door to the Alhóndiga that the insurgents had broke through only weeks earlier.
