On October 26, 1848, Bvt. Maj. Joseph H. LaMotte led two companies of
the First United States Infantry to Davis Landing, near the newly
established Rio Grande City in Starr County.
You might try Fort Ringgold, established at Rio Grande City in 1848.

Surnames: Ryan, Garza, Reeves from Rio Grande City TX in the mid to late 1800s

Message Board Post:
I am trying to find my great great grandfather's final resting place. According to some sources, he came to South Texas in 1846 with Zachary Taylor's army. I assume he was assigned to Fort Brown. He married my great great grandmother, Margarita Garza in Brownsville and according to another source, moved to Rio Grande City Texas. He had two daughters Adelaida Ryan who eventually married Florencio Gonzalez, also from Rio Grande City and Helena Ryan who married Dr. Alfred J. J. Austin, originally from Isle of Man, England. It appears that he must have died around 1859-1860 because my gg grandmother married Thomas Lloyd Reeves and had more children, also in Rio Grande City. Reeves was a Mason.
