U.S. Supreme Court

United States v. Camou, 184 U.S. 572 (1902)

United States v. Camou

No. 36

Submitted March 22, 1901

Decided March 17, 1902

184 U.S. 572


From its examination of the evidence in this case, this Court concurs in the view of the Court of Private Land Claims that a definite location and possession of the grant here in question, prior to the date of the Gadsden Treaty, are shown with reasonable certainty, and affirms the decree of that court confirming the claim to the extent of the four sitios granted and paid for.

In December, 1891, Juan Pedro Camou filed a petition in the Court of Private Land Claims, praying to have confirmed to him a certain tract of land situated in the County of Cochise, Territory of Arizona, known and designated as the San Rafael del Valle grant. Subsequent proceedings resulted in a trial and a decree in favor of the government, adjudging petitioner's claim and title invalid, and dismissing the petition. The case was then brought by appeal to this Court, where the decree of the Court of Private Land Claims was reversed and the case remanded for further proceedings. 171 U. S. 171 U.S. 277.

Subsequently further proceedings were had in the Court of Private Land Claims in pursuance of the mandate of this Court, resulting, on June 2, 1899, in a decree confirming the petitioner's title to 17,474.93 acres. From this decree of confirmation an appeal was allowed to this Court.
