  • -  Blue line map.
  • -  A large-scale cadastral map of Refugio County, showing land ownership and other topographical detail. Refugio County is located along the Gulf Coast, just north of Corpus Christi. Land lots both great and small are shown, and the name of the owner is given in either printed or manuscript form. The manuscript notes are plentiful, mostly in the central portion of the map, and carry the information forward as late as 1934. Interestingly, this was the same year that the Tom O'Connor field was discovered in Refugio County, and the area has been an important source of oil and gas ever since. The O'Connor family are shown to be major landowners, and the names of Martin O'Connor and Mrs. D.M. O'Connor also appear on the map as owners of large lots of land. Names of other women are also shown on large properties, including Rosa Lambert, Mrs. F.B. Rooke, and Mrs. K.D. Roache. The map itself is exceedingly rare, with no copies in OCLC; the present copy, with its manuscript additions, is positively unique and an important source for and ownership issues even to the present day.
