Her task has been a trying one, and, but for her great will-power, she would have broken down long ago; but she comes of a family renowned for physical and mental strength and beauty. Her father, Don Juan BANDINI, was a prominent official under the Mexican government,

Times 30 Sep 1910: Mrs. Margarita WINSTON noted CA woman, d in Santa Monica, yesterday, aft twenty minutes' illness d at the Ocean-ave home of her sister, Mrs. Arcdia BANDINI de BAKER, was daughter of Don Juan BANDINI, who came to CA in 1822 and was a was a conspicuous figure in the early history of the State. Mrs. WINSTON b at old San Diego BANDINI homestead.
She was the widow of Dr. J. B. WINSTON who resided in L.A. He was a surgeon in the U. S. army and was for a number of yrs one of the proprietors of the Bella Union Hotel in L.A. at the same time he was interested extensively in mining operations, having several claims on the upper San Gabriel River.
During his long years of residence in San Diego, the home of Don Juan BANDINI was the headquarters for social affairs and in these his interesting daughters were active participants. Being the son of a Lieutenant who served on the "Nymphia," at the Battle of Trafaigar, it was but natural that he should take a deep interest in naval and military affairs Then it happened that when Commodore STOCKTON visited San Diego, he was given liberally of the cattle and stores of the BANDINIS and was a frequent visitor at the home. In 1846, when Commodore STOCKTON took possession of San Diego in the name of the U.S. it so happened that there was not a U. S. flag readily accessible. The commodore related the circumstance to Senor BANDINI" and soon after that the red flannel petticoats of three of the sturdy don's little daughters were being torn to form the red stripes. Cotton sheets supplied the alternate bars, while blue flannel represented the stars. Mrs. WINSTON who died here today, was one of the little girls who sacrificed a part of her clothing for the memorable occasion. and when Commodore Stockton sent his report of the raising of the flag to Washington i.e. accompanied the document with the names of the donors of the flag. Later on the flag was sent to the nat'l capital, where it is preserved in the government archives.
Mrs. WINSTON was noted for her great beauty while young, and for her queenly carriage and incisive wit in her maturer years.
Aside from Mrs. BAKER, who is one of the wealthiest and best known women of southern CA., Mrs. WINSTON had 3 other sisters: Mrs. Cave J. COUTTS, Mrs. Charles JOHNSON, and Mrs. Don Pedro CARRILLO. The latter having been the mother of J. J. CARRILLO, one time Chief of Police of Los Angeles and Santa Monica's present police judge.
