German Land Grants of 1840s-1850s

Is there a Mason County website about the German land grants of the 1840s-1850s?

My grtgrt grandfather Friedrich Harsdorff/Hasdorff was one of the German families given land grants in Mason County. Although, he ended up settling in the DeWitt County area of Texas. After his death his children sold their portion of their land to the oldest daughter Louisa Harsdorff Albrecht. She was married to Friedrich Albrecht.

I do not know what happened the the land after Louisa and her husband bought it. I know they also lived in the DeWitt County area and do not know if they ever made the trip to Mason County.

Thank you,
