Walter Richarz and Joe Reff

Medina County, Texas

    About 1871, Walter Richarz and Joe Reff were going from their home near D'Hanis, in Medina County, to old Fort Lincoln, where H.J. Richarz, father of Walter Richarz, was camped. When they were about seven miles west of Sabinal, and just west of Dinner Creek, in Uvalde County, the two were killed by Indians, who took their horses and pack-mules.

    Note: Author interviewed: Joe Ney, of Hondo.
