On July 15, 1740, he was sent to an area of Louisiana, near Los Adaes, to investigate this area and the charges made by former governor Carlos Franquis de Lugo against also former governor Manuel de Sandoval and the missionaries in Texas. Boneo y Morales was named governor of Texas on December 17, 1743 and little after he was at Nuestra Señora del Pilar de Los Adaes Presidio.
