In 1825, while under the Mexican flag, a married man could receive as much as 4,428 acres for grazing purposes and 177 acres for farming by paying for locating, surveying, and securing title, which altogether would cost him less than land acquisition in the United States. An unmarried man could receive one-fourth that amount. Whether single or married, the men could take up to six (6) years to pay for their land, with payments beginning no later than the fourth year.
