Indian Fight of the Dillard Brothers

    About 1872, Two Dillard brothers, who lived in Young County, took a load of watermelons to Ft. Griffin, where they attended a dance. The boys then started home and were on the old Belknap-Griffin road, between King's and East King's Creeks, when charged by several savages. The oldest Dillard brother was asleep in the wagon at the time. But they jumped to the ground, tied their horses, and in a short time, whipped the Indians. Apparently they wounded two or three savages.

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