(Founded 6 Mar 1753)

This is an attempt to compile a list of the founding families of Mier, Tamaulipas, Mexico. The town of Mier, also known as Paso del Cantaro was founded by authority of Jose de Escandon on March 6, 1753. As my source, I have used Guillermo Garmendia Leal's book Fundadores de Tamaulipas 1748-1770 in which he documents several censuses from this period for various settlements in Tamaulipas. I have gone one step beyond in that I have compiled the list of names into families.

Notes:

bulletA "*" indicates the family is contained in the Genealogy Database
