Esparza Cemetery Historical Marker




Francisca Garcia de Esparza

Francisca Benavides Garcia was born in 1835 to Ramon Garza Garcia born in 1805 in Matamoros, Tamaulipas and Maria Antonia Garcia Benavides born in 1803 in Guerrero, Tamaulipas. Her parents were able to purchase land in San Pedro Carricitos grant from families that decided to leave. Francisca would inherit a portion of this land and she and her husband, Carlos Esparza, with this addition to their ranch were the largest land owners in San Pedro Carricitos. Francisca died in 1914 and the ranch was passed to their 5 sons and 3 daughters. Their sons all raised families on the ranch. Carlos, Francisca, their children and their spouses are buried in the Esparza Cemetery in El Ranchito, on Hwy 281 west of Brownsville, Texas.

Carlos Villarreal Esparza

Carlos Villarreal Esparza
1. CARLOS VILLARREAL 10 ESPARZA (PEDRO JOSE GUAJARDO 9, MANUEL ELIJIO ARISPE 8, DOMINGO GARCIA Y ESPARZA 7
TOMASA PEREZ ESPARZA DE GARCIA 6, CRISTOBAL GABAY RUIZ 5, LOPE EUGENIO RUIZ 4, LOPE ESPINOSA RUIZ 3, MARTIN VICI RUIZ 2, SIMON RUIZ 1.) was born 04 Nov 1828 in La Encantada Ranch, Matamoros,Tamaulipas, and died 25 Sep 1885 in La Encantada Ranch, Cameron Cty, TX. He married FRANCISCA BENAVIDES GARCIA 30 Jan 1850 in Immaculate Conception Church, ,Brownsville, Texas, daughter of RAMON GARCIA and MARIA BENAVIDES. She was born Abt 1834 in Matamoros, Tamaulipas, Mexico, and died 21 Feb 1914 La Encantada Ranch, Cameron Cty, TX.
Notes for CARLOS VILLARREAL ESPARZA:
Carlos Esparza had been running La Encantada Ranch since before his father, Pedro's death. Carlos was a good business man and a shrewd politician. During and after the Mexican American War he joined with Juan Cortina, another land owner in the area, to help the Mexican Americans protect their land from the new settlers coming from the north. When the war ended the Treaty Guadalupe Hidalgo, signed by the Mexican & U S. governments guaranteed the Mexican settlers to keep their land but many settlers from the United States wanted this land and tried to force the Mexican land owners back across the Rio Grande River into Mexico. The larger land owners and the " Cortinistas" tried to organize and help the smaller owners protect their land. Though many lost their land and left the area the "Cortinistas" succeeded in protecting La Encantada Ranch and other ranches in the area. Carlos continued to manage the ranch until his father, Pedro's death in about 1879. La Encantada was then divided by the heirs of Pedro and Felicidad. Carlos inherited 1/6th of the ranch from his parents. He also purchased the 1/6th inheritance of each of his two sisters Candalaria and Inez giving him one half of La Encantada Ranch. Carlos continued ranching on his portion of the land where he and his wife Francisca Garcia raised their family.
Carlos was a philosopher whose dichos have survived to this day. They were published in a book by R & E Research Associates, Inc. 4843 Mission Street, San Francisco. California 94112. The author of the 123 page book "Carlos Esparza: a Chicano Chronicle " is Carlos Larralde. Carlos Larralde is a member of the Esparza family through Francisca Esparza Montalvo (daughter of Jose Garcia Esparza & Rufina Sayas).

Juan Nepomuceno Cortina

Juan Nepomuceno Goseascochea Cortina
1. JUAN NEPOMUCENO GOSEASCOCHEA2 CORTINA (TRINIDAD1) was born 16 May 1824 in Camargo, Tamaulipas, Mexico, and died 30 Oct 1894 in Mexico City, Mexico. He married (1) DOLORES GOSEASCOCHEA TIJERINA 01 Jul 1846 in Matamoros ,Tamaulipas, Mexico, daughter of JUAN TIJERINA and FELICIANA GOSEASCOCHEA. She was born Abt 1830 in Matamoros, Tamaulipas, and died Abt 1847, no issue. He married (2) RAFAELA CORTEZ Jan 1850 in Brownsville, Cameron County, Texas. He married (3) MARIA JESUS LOPEZ Abt 1853.
Notes for JUAN NEPOMUCENO GOSEASCOCHEA CORTINA:
Juan N Cortina was the famous Mexican general that stood up for the rights of his people after the Mexican American War. The Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo was signed by both countries granting all the Mexican people north of the Rio Grande the right to keep their land as long as they were occupying it. This was a bitter time along the river. Many Mexican people left because of threats from the new Anglo settlers, but many fought for their rights and stayed on their land. It was Cortina that organized the ranchers so they could protect their land. This group of ranchers were called the "Cortinistas".
Juan Cortina returned to Mexico where he died. He stilll has family living on the land his ancestors recieved as Spanish land grantees.

Espiritu Santo Land Grant


“Espiritu Santo” Grant


Original Grantee Jose Salvador De La Garza
284,415.8 acres, Cameron County, Texas. Abstract C-2. Granted by Spain, 1781. Bourland and Miller Report, pp 47 and 48. Feliciana Goseascochea de Tijerina, for herself and other heirs, Doña Maria de los Angeles Garcia de Tarnava, Ramon Lafon and their heirs, Estefana Goseascochea and her heirs, Don Manuel Prieto and his heirs, Don Rafael Garcia Cabazos and his wife Doña Maria Josefa Cabazos and their heirs apply separately as specified in their petitions for the confirmation of a certain tract of land called “El Potrero” or “El Agostadero del Espiritu Santo” containing fifty-nine and a half leagues originally granted to Don Jose Salvador de la Garza by the old Spanish government in 1781. Witnesses prove the validity of the original grant, the occupation and cultivation of the lands by the original grantee and his descendants for the last sixty years, having thereon numerous herds of stock, many tenants and servants sufficient to occupy the whole extent of 59 ½ leagues; and that said original grantee’s descendants and tenants continued to occupy and hold absolute possession of said tract, never having abandoned it at any time because of Indian incursions, down to the approach of the U. S. Army in 1846; and all government dues were regularly paid by the parties interested. [Confirmed by Legislature, Act of February 10, 1852. Patented June 21, 1859; No. 968, Vol. 12. General Land Office File San Patricio 1-432.]
