       DOMÍNGUEZ, CRISTÓBAL (?–1814). Cristóbal Domínguez, who briefly served as governor of Texas in 1813, came to the province probably from New Mexico. He was adjutant inspector of presidios for Coahuila and Texas, when he was ordered to Nacogdoches on November 26, 1810, by Governor Manuel María de Salcedo. With the outbreak of the Casas Revolt, José María Guadiana, military commandant at Nacogdoches, had Domínguez arrested because of his loyalty to the Spanish government.
