This map showing the new colonies and official roads in Coahuila or Mexican Texas was revised with the addition of Washington and the La Bahia Road. The Coshatta or Contraband Trace is not shown. The roads are shown straight, they are just connections between places. But, there is a lot of info here. 1. We know the roads east from San Felipe split at Pattison, not San Felipe, after crossing the Brazos at San Felipe. The Atascocita Road ran along the south side of Raccon or Cypress Creek. It had to pass the Hockley Mound landmark. 2. The San Felipe Road runs along the watershed, Laneview Road, and joins the La Bahia Road near Anderson, a little closer to the Brazos. The middle third is the Coshatta Trace along Laneview and just west and parallel to Mellman Road. 3. The San Felipe Road to Harrisburg runs the south side of Buffalo Bayou, and ends at New Washington, or Morgan?s Point on the Bay. 4. There was a road alone either side of the Brazos between San Felipe and Brazoria.
