In 1797, a married woman, Rosa, from Hågat, was found to be having an adulterous liaison with Rafael Achuga of Sinajaña.  Rosa's aggrieved husband took the matter to the parish priest of Hagåtña.  The civil government took over the case. 

The result?

Rosa was sent to live with Ignacio Javier de Castro and his wife.  The couple were to supervise her.

The man, Rafael Achuga, was sentenced to work at the government farm, San Pedro de Dandan.  Gaspar Pangelinan was overseer of that farm.  So down in Dandan, not far from Malojlo, the Spanish Crown once owned farm land.
