Rosagua “Rose” Wiley is the granddaughter of Francisco and Manuela
Trujillo, who settled Old Topanga in 1886. Her mother Cornelia Gomez
answered a call to help at the Trujillo Ranch in 1913, and wound up marrying
the oldest son Dolores Trujillo.
“Seated at the wheel of his 1928 LaSalle touring sedan, kerchief knotted
around the collar of his blue denim jacket and eyes shaded by his wide-
brimmed felt hat, to many observers Dolores Trujillo was the epitome of
pastoral Topanga.”
The Topanga Story
Rose married Robert Wiley, and raised six children—Marguerite, Robert,
David, John, Laura, and Jimmy—on the Trujillo homestead, where she still
lives today.
