1853-11-19: Hawes Receives from Larios One Tenth of [Unknown Parcel]

Saturday, November 19, 1853 – Horace Hawes, Lawyer, receives from Don Manuel Larios, for legal help with the land commission for Ranchito de San Antonio near the Pueblo de San Juan Bautista; one tenth (decimo) of the confirmed territory (what territory?) (in Spanish).

Agreements, Book A, p. 54.

NOTE: Did Horace Hawes own 1/10th of the Quien Sabe that he bought from William Carey Jones (which could have actually been 1/20th of the combined Santa Ana y Quien Sabe); and this new 1/10th of Manuel Larios’ Santa Ana (which was also still a part of the combined ranch?)? If so, then he owned 1/10th of the combined Santa Ana y Quien Sabe ranch.

1853-10-25: William Carey Jones sold his share (of 1 undivided tenth of Quien Sabe) to Horace Hawes.

Tuesday, October 25, 1853 – William Carey Jones sold his share (of 1 undivided tenth of Quien Sabe) to Horace Hawes.

Abstract v.2 p.218, p. 216.

See also 9/1/1854

NOTE: But was it really 1 undivided 20th of the combined ranch? Because the ranch was later found to be a contiguous whole; and not divided between Rancho Santa Ana and Rancho Quien Sabe.
