Regarding The Fountain of the Calvary. Captain Joseph Aguilar de Rebolledo was a mayor of what is now known as Antigua Guatemala and the surrounding areas during the late 1600s in Spanish colonial Guatemala. He was also the administrator of various properties owned by Luis Nieto de Silva. It is presumed that this marker was placed by his many descendants in Guatemala, due to the many family names shown in the text.
