HISTORICAL AND CULTURAL DATA OF SAN JOSE - SICO

When the Americans came to the Philippine to free the country from the hands of the Japanese, a group of Japanese soldiers who landed on the shores of Batangas City for their retreat took his way. When a certain Japanese official was killed in Bilogo, the Japanese soldiers who came to search for him were informed that Japanese official was last seen in this place. The soldiers burned four big houses in this place which were owned by Hilario Lontoc, Pedro Ramos, Eleuterio Canent and Francisco Rosales

Politics in this barrio still lies on the hands of their leaders. Most of the people still lack the necessary self-confidence they need in choosing their right ones ; they still need someone to hold unto, so to say.

There's a certain public elementary school in the barrio although the people have just started in giving their children the necessary education they need.

Barangay San Jose SicoPresently, this barrio is called San Jose-Sico. Fomerly it was called SanJose plainly but most often it was misinterpreted to the town of San Jose in the post office so it was given the annex name Sico which was taken from the fact that the Central portion of the barrio lies right on the curve afforded by the road from Batangas leading to Taysan.

Original Families in the barrio are those of: Macario Sulit, Juan Ramos, Modesto Macaraig, Felipe Manalo and Francisco Rosales. The known “Tenientes del Barrio" from the past to the present are as follows: a. Macario Sulit b. Sabas Perez c. Juan Chavez d. Francisco Escal e. Apolonio Perez.

Today, as modern civilization has found its way on various parts of the country, the barrio folks here are just beginning to adopt the changes brought about by such civilization. Hospitality is still a part of folks everyday living and the spirit of “bayanihan" still exists. People are polite and obedient, too. On the other hand, the habit of walking barefooted, eating with bare hands, lack of necessary proper way of waste disposal, stray pigs, chickens and other animals, gambling, stealing of not so important things, drinking intoxicating liquor especially among the juveniles, are among the barrio's serious problems at present.
