San Pedro de Carricitos

"San Pedro de Carricitos" land grant consisted of 12,730.59 acres in Cameron County. It was granted by Mexico, October 30, 1833. Pedro Bouchard applies for himself and Ramon Garcia for the heirs of Matias Garcia and the heirs of Jose Maria Villarreal and the heirs of Miguel Cabazos for three leagues originally granted to Pedro Villarreal in 1784. Witnesses prove occupation, cultivation and pasturage of said tract for many years prior to March 2, 1836, and never heard of any adverse claimants. All the papers and other documents formerly presented to the Board were lost by shipwreck. Recommended. Confirmed by the Legislature, Act of February 10, 1852. Decree of District Court of Cameron County, January 24, 1872, in file: Pedro Esparza et al. v. Sabas Cabazos and Damacio Cantu; Felipe Trevino et al., intervenors. Felipe Trevino and Carmen Trevino recover from plaintiffs and defendants all lands described in intervenors' petition...to be divided in three parts between [those named].
