Forbes has released its list of the 400 wealthiest Americans, and 43 of the spots are Texans — with 16 residing in North Texas.

Walmart (NYSE: WMT) heir Alice Walton takes the 15th spot and title as the richest DFW resident with a net worth of $55.7 billion. But according to a story in The Dallas Morning News, Walton’s net worth dropped more than $12 billion from last year, removing her long-reigning title as the richest woman in America (she is now second to Julia Koch and her family.)

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones follows behind at No. 44 with a net worth of $16 billion, and Beal Financial Corporation owner Andrew Beal trails with the No. 61 spot with a net worth of $10.3 billion. Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban finds himself at No. 227 with a net worth of $4.6 billion.

According to the list, the world’s richest man, now a Texan, takes the No. 1 spot. Elon Musk sits at the top with an estimated $251 billion net worth. Austin resident and Tesla (Nasdaq: TSLA) CEO currently has a launch site along the Gulf Coast for spacecraft manufacturer SpaceX.
