In 1813, one Cristobal de Arteaga arrived within the country. It is possible that before the year of 1810, someone who bore the surname of Arteaga attempted to migrate to the United States and passed away en route. The living conditions on the transportation ships were poor, often causing the passengers to arrive with disease and starvation, if they arrived at all.
