Francisca de la Guerra Dibblee was a granddaughter of José de la Guerra and was born in Casa de la Guerra in 1848. She married Thomas Bloodgood Dibblee in 1868 and as a wedding present, Dibblee had built the grand Punta del Castillo mansion overlooking the ocean on Santa Barbara's Mesa bluffs. Guiseppe Fagnani was already a well-known portrait painter when he came to the U.S., ultimately settling in New York City in the early 1850s. Among his subjects were numbered U.S. Presidents Zachary Taylor and Millard Fillmore, as well as John C. Fremont, Henry Clay, and Daniel Webster.
