A. HISTORY OF ANONAS

     Anonas is a fruit bearing  which abound in the place to this day.
It was already a progressive settlement which in Urdaneta was founded
in 1858  with  a big chapel and spacious plaza. the Malapit, Gallardo,
Gumtang,  Aquino,  Gandia, Lopez, and Servito families were among the
first to settle here. The  Malapit, Aquino and Servito famillies came
from Mangaldan while  the  rest came from Ilocos Region. The original
name  of  the  barrio  was  San  Ambrosio  after   its  patron  saint.
Cayambanan  was  formerly  as  part of Anonas. This barrio was then a
territory ofMangaldan and even dead people in Anonas had to be buried
in  Mangaldan.  After  a  lapse  of  a  number  of  years, Cayambanan
segregated  itself  as a barrio. It turns for no known reason. Anonas
was also made a part of Cayambanan.

     Most  of  the  people are farmers, some are weavers of barac-bac
slippers  and travelling bags. Others raise pigs and chickens and put
fruit  tree  orchards of their own. Some also plant kangkong and make
powder  out  of  ipil leaves for sale. The people also use pul-oan in
catching  shrimps. It's  principal  crop is rice while it also raises
corn,eggplants, tomatoes, and other vegetable. The construction  of a
feeder  road  greatly enchained the economic progress of the locality.
Flowing  artesian  wells  could  be  found  in  many homes  for  safe
drinking water and for other purposes.
