In the late seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries the Alachome Indians, apparently Coahuiltecans, ranged from northeastern Coahuila northward across the Rio Grande into the adjoining part of Texas south of the Edwards Plateau. The Alachomes are not to be confused with the Chomes; both names appear in the same document.
