On Dec. 25, 1871, Cuero Land and Immigration Company was formed to develop 4,128 acres of land from J. A. Valdez y Gonzales League (granted 1833 by Mexico). Company charter was issued Feb. 7, 1872. There were four founders and stockholders of C.L.I.C.:

Gustav Schleicher (1827-1879), civil engineer and lawyer, surveyor of route of Gulf, Western Texas & Pacific Railway and city of Cuero, U.S. Congressman (1875-79), honored in naming of a county and a bridge.

Fletcher S. Stockdale (1824-1890), lawyer, statesman, Governor of Texas (summer of 1865), member of Texas Constitutional Convention of 1875, civic leader.

Charles M. Terrell (1832-1904), U.S. Army paymaster.

John C. French (1825-1889), a civic leader, developer.
In Jan. 1873, C.L.I.C. donated 100 acres (Morgantown) to Gulf, Western Texas & Pacific to induce railway to build its line to this site. First train arrived March 4, 1873, and lot sales boomed. City prospered as western terminus of the railroad. The company donated sites for churches, schools, and public uses (including this block, designated market square). In 1888, when Cuero had 2,000 people, C.L.I.C. ceased operating, but the city continued to grow and prosper. Many street names honor the memory of C.L.I.C. stockholders.
