Bandera County, Texas

    During the fall of 1866, Thomas Click, who was on his way from Bandera to the Huffman Ranch, about six miles west of town, was killed by Indians at the crossing of the Medina. He was unarmed, lanced, stripped, and found by his brother, M.G. Click and D.A. Weaver, the next day after his death.

    A short time before, and during the same year, Tom Click only barely escaped a band of fleeing savages, who chased him to the home of Jno. A. Jones, on Myrtle Creek, a few miles from Bandera. On this occasion, Tom Click received a severe arrow-wound in his back.
