San Patricio, Texas

History

San Patricio 1935. San Patrick—This is an Irish colony situated in McMullen’s and McGloin’s grant, on the right bank of the Nueces. A number of Irish families have settled here, and many others will probably find an asylum, with the certain prospect of plenty and independence. The settlement of Irish colo­nies in this grant is the great object of the Em­presarios who are, themselves, “exiles of Erin.” The Mexican garrison at this place surrendered to the patriots on the 3d of October, 1835. - Texas by Holley, Mary Austin; Austin, Texas, 1935, page 115
