Killing of Mr. White

Uvalde County, Texas

For the following account of Indian of Indian outrages in Uvalde county we are indebted chiefly to Mr. Ross Kennedy, a well known citizen of that county: The first murder committed by the Indians in Uvalde county of which we have any account was Louis Thompson, who was killed some time in September, 1859, while gathering pecans on the Frio river. He was charged upon by a party of seven Indians, who evidently ran in between him and his wagon, in which he had left his gun, and of course he was killed without being able to make any resistance. The same party of Indians, it is supposed, in October, killed a Mr. White on Hondo Creek, near where the main wagon road crosses it.
