Estanislao Cucunuchi, born at San Jose Mission, was 28 when he led fellow Laquisemne Yokuts (from near Ripon) in a revolt in 1828. The horse-raiding rebels were pursued by Mariano Vallejo, but Estanislao turned himself in and was pardoned. His name (with English pronunciation) was bestowed on both a river and county.
