Juan Ygnacio de la PEÑA752 died on 24 June 1847. Juan Ygnacio de la Peña was the Original Grantee of the "Los Olmos y Loma Blanca" land grant containing 10 leagues of land. It was granted by the Mexican state of Tamaulipas on December 9, 1831 and contained a total of 44,280 acres -- 24,000 acres in present-day Brooks County, Texas and 20,280 acres in Jim Wells County, Texas. The town of Falfurrias, the county seat of Brooks County, is located on the southern portion of this tract.
Adjoining the western boundary of "Los Olmos y Loma Blanca" was a 5-league tract known as "Los Olmos". Juan Antonio Canales claimed to be the Original Grantee of "Los Olmos" but the District Court of Nueces County determined that Canales had merely acted as the agent of Juan Ygnacio de la Peña and awarded possession of that tract to de la Peña. "Los Olmos" was awarded by the Mexican state of Tamaulipas on December 9, 1831 and contained 22,140 acres -- 12,900 acres in present-day Brooks County, 4,702 acres in Duval County, and 4,518 acres in Jim Wells County.
Juan Ygnacio's father was Jose Antonio de la Peña y Lopez, the Original Grantee of a nearby tract called "Los Magueyes de Palo Blanco" (also called "Charco Redondo" and "Palo Blanco"). It contained 16,004 acres, all within Brooks County along its western boundary with Jim Hogg County.

Salomon PEÑA Lopez2782,2783 was born about 1810. His age was given as 45 in the 1860 Census, indicating a birth date around 1815. However, 10 years later in the 1870 Census, his age is shown as 50 (difficult to read, it could be 58), which would indicate a birth date around 1820 (if age was 58, then birth date could be 1812). Josefina Vera, in her "Memories from La Grulla on the Rio Grande", states that Salomon Peña was captured by the Indians perhaps around 1815 when he was a young boy, indicating a birth date of perhaps 1810. Considering that Lucas Longoria, after being captured by the Apaches in 1835, referred to Salomon Peña as an "old man", my best guess is that he was born about 1810. Salomon Peña was captured by Apache Indians when he was just a young boy. He was captured, perhaps sometime around the year 1815, from the Rancho Garcia, which was located just to the north of Camargo. This was probably in Porcion 78, or perhaps Porcion 76. He lived with the Apaches for many years and even took an Apache woman as his wife. He was living among the Apache in 1835 when they brought another young captive, Lucas Longoria, into their camp. Salomon Peña, or Suadero (Wormy Saddle Blanket) as he was called by the Apaches, befriended Lucas Longoria and became his mentor in teaching him the ways of the Apache. Eventually, in 1849, he helped Lucas escape but apparently did not leave with him because he still had his Apache wife. Some years later, Salomon also returned home and eventually married Antonia Juarez.
Apparently, he lost his hearing sometime later; the 1860 Census indicates that Salomon Peña was deaf.

Secundino PEÑA51 was born about 1852. His age is listed as 7 in the 1860 Census, and as 18 in the 1870 Census. This would indicate he was born in 1852 or 1853. He was baptized in 1852 so I am assuming he was born in 1852. His death certificate gives his birthdate as July 1, 1853, but this is after his baptism date. He died on 23 June 1932 at the age of 80 in Victoria, Victoria County, TX, USA.757 He owned a cafe in Victoria, Texas. Parents: Salomon PEÑA Lopez and Antonia JUAREZ.
