SAN PEDRO VILLAGE. San Pedro Village, a Nabedache settlement near San Pedro Creek in what later became Houston County, was probably visited by René Robert Cavelier, Sieur de La Salle, in 1686. It was the site of San Francisco de los Tejas Mission in 1690. According to Juan Agustín Morfi, writing in the 1780s, the town had eighty families.
