CAPELLONE INDIANS

CAPELLONE INDIANS. This name, which is known only from the records of San Antonio de Valero Mission of San Antonio, cannot be related to any known group of Indians. It may be a variant of Apion, the name of another group at the same mission. If the two are the same, a former place name near Laredo, La CaƱada de los Abiones, suggests residence in Coahuiltecan Indian territory.
