June 13 in San Antonio history...

1691
Domingo Teran de los Rios, first Governor of the new Province of Texas, accompanies Father Damian Massanet on his return trip to East Texas. Camping at a rancherria of Payaya Indians on a stream called Yanaguana, they celebrate mass and rename the stream San Antonio because it was the feast day of San Antonio de Padua.
