Supposedly, Jose De Hinojosa was granted porcion 105 in Starr County in 1767, was his son Juan Joseph ponciano hinojosa? if so then i am a direct descendant of Jose De Hinojosa. Juan Joseph ponciano had a son named Jose Lino Hinojosa who was born in 1836 in Camargo.

The Unknown Heirs of Porcion 103

By: Pat Treviño

The book is about a Tejaño family who are descendants of colonial settlers of lands north of the Rio Grande River (Rio Bravo). Descendants whose ancestors received Spanish land grants from the King of Spain during the General Visit of the Royal Commission in 1776. As descendants of the indigenous and Spanish people; the family has sought legal ramifications and compensation for the undivided property and undivided interest which was lost to them after the Mexican-American War. The land is currently occupied by squatters who gained ownership because of adverse possession laws established in Texas which essentially made it legal to steal land from grantees.

The book touches on the current movement by descendants of original grantees of Spanish and Mexican land grants which is now sweeping the Southwest, and which many families have been trying to regain since the annexation of the territory by the United States government. The book discusses The Guadalupe Hidalgo Treaty; and the millions perhaps billions of dollars of oil royalties held in escrow accounts for its heirs.

It concerns me that so many people offer their information so freely. While at the Rio Grand City Court house, we found that someone had underlined my family name in several land records. Since I have not done any research lately and certaintly would not mot mark up government records, I wonder who would be doing this.
I do know there are some companies trying to stop any suits and avoid a long court fight.
Could you please tell me the reason for gathering names and what you hope to accomplish? I am just very curious.
Thank you, Cynthia

Hello Cynthia,
I agree with you that marking government records shows disrespect and a total disregard for such important documents. The overseers of our archives should be more diligent at their jobs and pay close attention to those who seek to desecrate these records. My interest is to join allegiance with other descendants in an effort to pull our resources against those who seek to stop or hinder the progress of establishing our rightful legacy. I have a private website which is open only to proven family members which provides free genealogical data. I also have a myspace account which you are welcome to view which offers information about me and the purpose of my endeavor.

There you have it Cynthia, I am an open book.
