PATAQUILLA VILLAGE. Pataquilla (Patoguilla), a small Indian village on the San Antonio River near the site of present Goliad in Goliad County, may have been either Karankawan or Coahuiltecan. In 1780 Fray Juan Agustín Morfi, who toured the area in 1777–78, wrote that only three persons lived at the ranchería.
