Thank you very much. I was not aware of the Poll Lists of 1846 book. You have been most helpful!

The Harts of San Patricio were certainly Irish! There were several Hart families (not apparently related) who settled in the areas of San Patricio and Bee Counties under Mexican Land Grants. San Patricio County, of course, means Saint Patrick County in English!

These HART families internarried and the names Timothy and Bridget were very prevalent which really confuses the issue.

My 3rd and 4th great grandparents were HARTS and settled on Mexican land grants.

Most Texans do not know the story of these brave Irish who settled in South Texas about the time that Stephen F. Austin was colonizing East Texas.

Many of these Irish fought for Texas Independence. My 3rd great uncle, Timothy HART signed the Texas Declaration of Independence at Goliad.
