NOTES: This site can trace it it's beginnings to 1755 when Tomas Sanchez later founder of Laredo was the leader of the Villa de Vedoya which at that time was located adjacent to Mission Señora de la Sota (Lipantitlan). Sanchez then relocated the village to a point on the Piñetas Creek about one and a half miles from it's entry into the Nueces. Apparently this village was also abandoned and Sanchez moved back to the Laredo site. In 1766 this site was resettled by a Jose de la Garza. In 1807 it was formally granted to Juan Jose de la Garza Montemayor, apparently an heir and soon after it became a port of entry for trade with Mexico. Background and info in 106-57/58
