Hi Edna!
Each county had land set aside for benefiting the public schools. Nowadays, since some of these have been sold, you will them mostly for land descriptions, as they were surveyed for location.

A good (if WAY thourough) discussion is in the Handbook of Texas Online from the state historical association. Here are two of the links:

http://www.tshaonline.org/handbook/online/articles/PP/gzp2.html

The first paragraph of the first one probably gives you the basis fr what you need to know.

Happy Hunting!
Andrea
