Juan Jose BALLI Hinojosa520,521 was the Original Grantee of "San Salvador del Tule" land grant in Hidalgo, Kenedy, Brooks and Willacy Counties on 18 November 1797.522 The "San Salvador del Tule" land grant encompassed a total of 315,391 acres and was granted by Spain on November 18, 1797. Included within its boundaries is the salt lake known as "Sal del Rey", a revenue source for the Spanish Crown since it imposed a one-fifth tax on the salt that was sold. The road from the Rio Grande River to "Sal del Rey" was known as the Camino del Rey.

Because Juan Jose Balli had not occupied the lands for the requisite ten years the authorities determined that he could not acquire the lands through the procedure known as "composicion" but had to purchase the lands instead. Juan Jose Balli was the only bidder and purchased "San Salvador del Tule" for the appraised value of four reales per sitio (league) plus fees and processing costs. He died on 9 May 1804 at Altamira Prison in San Carlos, Mexico.523 He was charged with smuggling salt from El Sal del Rey and was imprisoned at Altamira prison in San Carlos, Mexico. He was charged by Spanish officials with smuggling salt from El Sal del Rey and not paying the King's tax. He was also suspected of aiding the cause of Mexican independence from Spain. He was imprisoned in 1804 at Altamira prison in San Carlos, Mexico, and died there on May 9 of that year. Parents: Capt. Jose Maria BALLI Guerra and Rosa Maria HINOJOSA Benavides.
