Hilario Cabahug was born about 1857, most likely in Mandaue, Cebu, the son of Mariano Cabahug and Antonia Muñez. Although the above record indicates he was a native of Tabogon (natural de Tabogon), this information was likely given by someone unfamiliar with Hilario's early life. The marriage record of his younger brother shows that Felix was native of Mandaue, making it highly likely the family began there. Hilario moved to Tabogon shortly before 1875, along with his family.
Hilario married Maria Guylan, probably in Tabogon, where they lived for about 25 years. Unfortunately the church records from Tabogon are not available to document their marriage and many of their children. Beginning in 1899, the children of several Cabahug family members from Tabogon, including Hilario, were baptized at the church in Bogo39. Hilario and family moved to Bogo around 1905, but it is not until the 1908 baptism of Pricila, that there is clear evidence that Hilario was a resident there39. Hilario's descendants relate that he owned a considerable number of properties in the barrio of Lib-og, which is part of Barangay Guadalupe, suggesting that he was growing sugar cane for the burgeoning sugar trade in northern Cebu. They also say that Hilario and Maria had 14 or more children, only some of whom are identified below. Hilario died on June 18, 1922, at the age of sixty-five, from a tumor.
