SAN FRANCISCO DE VALERO PUEBLO

SAN FRANCISCO DE VALERO PUEBLO. San Francisco de Valero, an Indian pueblo around San Francisco de los Tejas Mission, was organized by Martín de Alarcón on October 14, 1718. The pueblo was abandoned when the Spanish withdrew from East Texas in 1719 but was reestablished in 1721 by the Marqués de Aguayo.
