TOV INDIANS

TOV INDIANS. The Tov Indians are known only from San Antonio de Valero Mission at San Antonio shortly before this mission was secularized in the late eighteenth century. It seems likely that Tov is a variant of either Top or Tup. It is reported that Tup Indians entered the mission sometime after 1755. It is still uncertain whether Top and Tup refer to two separate groups or to a single group.
