Barcelona was one of two doctors--the other being Simeon Villa--who joined Aguinaldo in his flight to Palanan, Isabela, in November 1899. He, too, was captured by the Americans in March 1901. He was one of the two personal physicians of Gen. Emilio Aguinaldo who accompanied him in his retreat through the mountain fastnesse of northern Luzon to evade capture by the American troops in 1901. Barcelona was born on May 23, 1863 in Pulilan, Bulacan. His parents were poor and he had to employ himself as a houseboy in order to continue his studies in Manila. A wealthy businessman, Marcelino de los Santos, hired him as a tutor for the De Los Santos family and later on adopted him as a son. Through the help of his benefactor, whose daughter he subsequently married, Barcelona was able to finish his medical course in Spain in 1893. Marcelino de los Santos was imprisoned in Fort Santiago shortly after the discovery of the Katipunan in 1896 and was released only after Barcelona testified in his favor. Immediately after the incident, the Santos family left for Singapore where they received news of the Spanish-American war in 1898. It was in the house of Santos in Singapore that General Aguinaldo stayed during his exile. Barcelona, together with Dr. Simeon Villa, kept a daily account of the Filipinos'' flight from the American forces. His diary terminated with the capture of Aguinaldo in Palanan, Isabela, on March 23, 1901. Aguinaldo gave the rank of brigadier general to Barcelona, but he never used it. A member of the Malolos Congress representing Butuan, he treated the wounded when hostilities broke out on Feb. 4, 1899. Basically an obstetrician, he also attended to Mrs. Aguinaldo during Aguinaldo''s flight in northern Luzon.
