Harm Gerdes

    It was about 1865, while out hunting his horse, the Indians killed Harm Gerdes, who lived on the Cuihi, in Medina County. They found him about two miles east of this home, where he had been mortally lanced by the savages, who caught him unarmed, although he was an excellent shot, and marksman.

    Note: Author personally interviewed: Bud Neuman, Joe Nay, and others who lived in this section at the time.

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