By 1801, the population in San Miguel had reached 182, including 85 men and boys, and 97 women and girls, exceeding the 123 residents at the Pecos Pueblo. Soon after, the original and newly arriving settlers established San José, as already mentioned, and continued to settle other communities along the Pecos River, including La Cuesta, later named Villanueva, and Las Mulas, Entrañosa, Puertocito, Guzano, Bernal and El Pueblo. These and other communities flourished, and by the early 1830s their combined population exceeded 2,000 people.
