The family roots to the community and the Bexar County Courthouse run deep. The property upon which the Bexar County Courthouse sits and was owned by the Kemmy Brother's maternal ancestors at the turn of the nineteenth century (Maria Leal 1752-1806). Going even further back in history into the Saldana family lineage, maternal ancestor Juan Leal Goraz was one of the 16 founding families from the Canary Islands who settled San Antonio in 1731. Leal Goraz became the area's first alcade or mayor. (See Chabot, With Makers of San Antonio, p. 147-154)
