John Schriber

Medina County, Texas

    John Schriber who lived near D'Hanis, in Medina County, left his home one morning in 1861, on a mule in search of oxen. Later during the same day, the mule returned without Schriber and with an arrow sticking in its side. A searching party was sent out, and Mr. Schriber was found dead and scalped where he had been massacred by the Indians.

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