Biographical data
Name: Muñoz, John B.  
   Also known as: Juan Muñoz
Born: 1844
Died: 18 Mar. 1894
 
Notes:
Brother of Manuel Muñoz, jr., and son of Manuel Muñoz, sr. (Manuel Muñoz y Castro). The Brooklyn Daily Eagle of 9 Dec. 1872 gives 'T.B. Munoz'. The obituary in the Brooklyn Daily Eagle of 29 Mar. 1894 says he died 'Sunday week', which I take to mean 18 Mar. 1894. He died at age 49, so was born between 19 Mar. 1844 and 18 Mar. 1845. The passenger list of the Ida, which arrived in Philadelphia on 24 July 1862 from Venezuela, has 'Juan Munoz' age 17, which further constrains his data of birth to no earlier than 25 July 1844. The Brookly Daily Eagle of 25 Oct. 1885 (p.16) has 'J.I. Munoz', which I am guessing is an error for 'J.B. Munoz'.
