He received Bounty Certificate No. 1232 for 320 acres of land, December 21, 1837 for having served in the army from March 4 to June 5, 1836.

The Probate Records of Bexar County show that Mr. Enriquez died in that county in 1851. His widow on May 24, 1852 sold to John James of San Antonio 960 acres of land for $25.00.
