The Spanish Grant - Bonanza S1|21

The Cartwrights try to disprove the validity of a Spanish land grant to stop the De La Cuesta family from seizing part of the Ponderosa and all of the Carson Valley settlers' homestead lands. The episode opens with a settler being evicted from his land by some Spanish vacqueros. When the couple insist they're not leaving, one vacquero moves toward the house. Mary Logan moves to stop him and is shoved to the ground. Her husband comes to her defense and is shot in the back by Sanchez. Mary is warned to be off the property and an eviction notice is nailed to the porch. The Cartwrights heard the gun shot and hurry to the Logan home, but they're too late. Mary is distraught. She doesn't want to leave the home she and her husband worked for five years. They're expecting a child now too, but her husband is dead. Ben convinces her to leave with them and stops Joe from chasing after the vacqueros. More one https://bonanza.fandom.com/wiki/The_Spanish_Grant
