Biographical details

She was exiled from Bogotá to Umbita by Morillo in August 1816. (Monsalve, 247)

In July 1816, her husband, Francisco Javier Ballesteros, wrote to the Military and Political General to say that poverty, the journey, or the weakness of their sex had made her and two girls accompanying her, ill and they had no means of buying medicine. He asked if the exile could be at the pueblo of Soacha that had a more agreeable climate. His letter is accompanied by two character references for Ballesteros, describing him as an honourable, humble, quiet man. (Monsalve, 284-285)
