Hi Josie --

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. I would be very interested in any upcoming events.

I don't have roots in Brownsville or Matamoros; my wife's family does though (Cisneros, Villarreal, Longoria families). However, I am a descendant of various founding families from Mier, Tamaulipas through my ggg grandparents, Tomas Ramirez and Concepcion, who moved from Mier to Laredo, TX in the 1890s. These families had land grants in South Texas dating from the 1760s, although at least my ancestors lost or sold their portion in the 1890s for reasons that aren't yet clear.

Please keep me posted on any upcoming events!

Chris Pineda

This is a link to an excellent website about the history of the Spanish/Mexican Land Grants in Texas.. It contains a list of them, and also the story of what happened to them, how they were lost to the American invaders. http://infinito9.com/landgrants/history.html
