Richard King vs. The heirs and assigns of Narciso Cavazos
Last Names of Nuevo Leon

In this blog post you can learn more about the recently published book Richard King Vs The Heirs and assigns of Narciso Cavazos.

If you are a descendant of Narciso Cavazos then this book will be of interest to you.

Narciso Cavazos was the son of Joseph Manuel Cavazos and Maria Josefa Gonzalez Hidalgo. He was born in El Valle del Pilon, nowadays Montemorelos Nuevo Leon.

He was married first to Maria Ignacia Hinojosa and then to Maria Guadalupe Cavazos.

Narciso came to El Nuevo Santander in the late 1700's and purchased the San Juan de Carrizitos Land Grant.

On May 22nd, 1889 Richard King filed a case against the Cavazos heirs and assigns of Narciso Cavazos regarding the Land Grant, San Juan Carricitos.

The book is packed with original copies of court records and accounts of descendants of Narciso Cavazos.

As a genealogist, not a descendnat of Narciso Cavazos, my favorite part of the book is the "An Abstract of Title" towards the end. It mentions the will and many descendants. The book also contains maps showing the land grant and how it was partitined among descendants.

The San Juan Carricitos land grant was for 60000 acres in northern Mexico, but then became The United States in December of 1845.

In these documents you will find a division list of the property divided by his heirs and some “purchased” by Richard King, Charles Stillman, and others.

During the court filings of King vs. The heirs of Narciso Cabasos a large chart was made of the land division and who owned the land at that time.
Read testimonies of some of the Cavazos’ heirs themselves.
