RECABARREN DE MARIN, Luisa (ray-cah-bar'-ren), Chilian patriot, born in Serena in 1777; died in Santiago, 31 May, 1839. She became an orphan at the age of eight years and was educated by her uncle, Estanislao Recabarren, dean of the cathedral of Santiago. In 1796 she married Dr. Jose Gaspar Marin (q. v.), in whose house she aided in preparing for tile events of 18 September, 1810. After the re-conquest of Chili by the Spaniards in October, 1814, her husband fled to the Argentine Republic, but she remained in Santiago, attending to the education of her children. In the last days of 1816 the authorities captured the correspondence of patriot in Melipilla, and found a letter from San Martin for Luisa, together with a list in cipher of the persons concerned in the conspiracy against the government. By order of Marco del Pont she was arrested, 4 January, 1817, and imprisoned in the convent of the Augustine nuns, whence she was liberated by the triumphant entry of the patriots, 12 February, 1817. She lived afterward greatly honored by the public, but survived her husband only three months.
