Mier Porciones-Land Grants on the Northern Side of the Rio Grande

When doing genealogy research we some times try to put our ancestors live’s into perspective but some times our research leads us to documents that help us do that. About a year ago I came across this book titled “Anales y Testimonios Del Cantaro”. You can read more about this book in my previous post here. The authors’s main focus in writing this book was to preserve the important archives of present day Ciudad Mier.

Among the pages of this book I came across a very important list and that was the list of the people that received land grants in the jurisdiction of La Villa de Mier in 1767. On a previous post “Map of Mier Land Grants on the Mexican Side and Names of People Awarded To” I only focused on the recipients south of the Rio Grande since you can practically not find that list anywhere else. Now this post is the second part listing all the land grant recipients on the North side of the river. I have also included Mary Jo Galindo’s map so that you may be able to put the lsit into context as to where the land grant may have been.
