I like the article, BUT they state that there are 13 points where the San Jacinto Mountains rise above 10,000'. Really? I know of six named peaks:
San Jacinto
Folly
Miller (which really isn't a peak, I mean come on)
Jean
Newton Drury
Marion

There's also Shirley "Peak" which is a knob on the side of the S. ridge of Jean Peak.

So the most generous interpretation would be seven (a more strict interpretation would be five) peaks. Where are these others?

Maybe they mean elsewhere in the Peninsular Ranges.
