• Chronology: Don Jose de Araneta was born in the province of Gipuzkoa, Basque. in Northern Spain.He joined the Spanish expedition to the West Indies and Mexico. During the Manila-Acapulco Galleon Trade in 1723, Jose de Araneta arrived in Manila aboard the Spanish Fleet "La Sacra de Familia". In 1725, Araneta joined the first Spanish expedition forces for Mindanao. A passage quoted from the book (Islas Filipinas: Mindanao Vol. 11), by Benito Francia and Julian Gonzales Parrado, translated from the Chabacano dialect by Datu Michael Mastura, establishes two facts: First, Don Jose de Araneta served the Spanish Politico-Military Government of Mindanao based at Zamboanga City. Second, he served as interpreter between the Spanish colonial government and the Sultan of Maguindanao, together with Placido Alberto de Saavedra. Another passage from the book revealed that in 1746, Don Jose Araneta was executed in Sulugan, Mindanao nowadays known as Anuling, in Cotabato, Philippines. The manner and date of his death was not conclusive. There are conflicting information drawn from translations of various documents pertaining to him.

Araneta-284 and Araneta-9 appear to represent the same person because: They have the same name, same birth and death dates, the same wife, and a child with the same name.
