COCOMEIOJE INDIANS

COCOMEIOJE INDIANS. This name appears only in the records of San Antonio de Valero Mission in San Antonio, and its status remains in doubt. The Cocomeiojes may be the same as the Cocomeguas, a Coahuiltecan band that lived near Cadereyta in north central Nuevo León during the second half of the seventeenth century, but documentary proof of this has not been found.
