Description

This served as the official map of Aransas County for over a decade. Permanent settlement did not begin in earnest until the late 1820s when James Power and James Hewetson were granted an empresario contract by the government of Mexico. Power and Hewetson brought Irish Catholic and Mexican immigrants to the area. The blue X’s indicate that the map was replaced by a newer version and “retired” from regular use.
