 It seems as if there were nineteen families with one hundred thirty-eight persons. THE FIRST NINE OF THOSE FOUND REGISTERED IN THIS VILLA DE CAMARGO, which finally became the seat to the numbers which are expressed in their departure, and the other ten, who newly presented themselves in order to populate the referred to the area at their own cost with no obligation to His Majesty, according to the laws, to support themselves with their families and possessions, only from the rivers of el Alamo and el Norte, and to receive military power as civilian soldiers, and in addition, liberties which are enjoyed by other colonizers of this new colony. In sight of this, so said his Excellency, he was ready to distribute lands and adequate water, declaring as he declares, that the aforementioned enjoy all privileges which other colonists of this said colony enjoy. With this the affair was concluded, which was signed by those who knew, with his Lordship, and to which I certify.

Mier in History, Mier en la Historia – Antonio Maria Guerra

It is with great joy that I introduce to you the following book. I say joy since it is an excellent book written by a local historian using only facts. It is a book about a town, Mier, who I clearly remember as a child when I would accompany my father on business trips. I loved playing in its plaza and would admire its church and its towering tower. I never knew the role that that town had played in the lives of its people and its surrounding communities for well over 250 years, and much less the role that it played between the Unites States and Mexico’s relations. That is until I read this book. In the following weeks I will be extracting historical and genealogical information contained in this great book, in order to get more people interested in it and also since it indicates where the original materials can be found.
