Good Photo of James Richard Hebbron. His son, William Lewis, married my first cousin twice removed, Amanda Teresa Puig.

James Hebbron purchased land in Texas. How many acres of land did his ranch in Hebbronville have?

Here is some information I've been able to glean about the holdings.

"Around 1880, the heirs of Ignacio Benevidez sold their share of Las Noriacitas Ranch to J R Hebbron.
With two others, he bought 18,000 acres of land in Duval County, just above Pena. One of his sons, Arthur Hebbron came down and took charge of running his ranch."

No, it's definitely spelt Hebbronville - can't check as I live in the UK, but will report it to the mayor's office if you tell me exactly where this sign is situated.

"Twice Removed" means separated by two generations. This would happen if one family married later and also had children later in life as well, compared with another, related, family.

Yes it is. It's approximately 35-40 miles south of Hebbronville on 1017. It's a very old community.

Ah!, the wonderful stories shared by many. History in a Pecan Shell.

The county was named after James Stephen Hogg, the Governor of Texas. Like Jim Wells County, the familiar Jim in lieu of James reflects the less formal attitude of Texas south of San Antonio. Be thankful it's not Jimmy Hogg.

The town dates from 1883 when the Texas Mexican Railroad built through the area. Francisco Pena was the stationmaster at the railroad stop he modestly named Pena. He refused to sell a right-of-way to the railroad, so they loaded the station onto a flatcar and moved it to land owned by rancher James Hebbron. Hebbronville became the county seat with a unanimous vote of 176. Mr. Pena's reaction was not mentioned in our source.

A hotel built by Viggo Kohler opened in 1915 when the town's population was 400. The hotel stands today but is now in use for county offices and the EMS. During the 20s and 30s - the anti-Catholic Mexican government caused a Franciscan Seminary to relocate to Hebbronville. It remains the most impressive edifice in Hebbronville, including the courthouse. It is still owned by the Archdiocese of Guadalajara, Mexico.

Agua Nueva is 30 miles south of Hebbronville on FM1017. The old community still has a few houses.
Some of the land is still owned by the great, great, great (?) grandson of the original Spanish land grantee.
