Foreword
by Mr. Alfonso Garcia, Historian

The purpose of putting together this map was to preserve the names and locations of as many Cameron County early ranches as possible. there is not, as far as I can find, a map with all the ranch sites that are on this map. The research that went into this map includes personal information, researching approx. 19 different maps; researching the oblate father's missonary work in Cameron County; interviewing a great number of people who lived or knew of these ranches.

The reason for creating this map of the early ranches of Cameron County was to preserve the development and history of the county.
