Paint Davis

Uvalde County, Texas

    About 1869, Paint Davis, C.D., J.T., and J.M. Findley, John Weymeller, and one or two others, struck an Indian trail where the road crossed the Nueces, about twenty-five miles north of Uvalde. The Indians were followed for about ten miles, when the six or seven citizens found themselves surrounded by a large band of savages. During the brief fight that followed, Paint Davis was killed.

The above story is from the book, The West Texas Frontier, by Joseph Carroll McConnell.
