180/Alternate Route to Weatherford
The homes of the Savage brothers were viciously attacked by Comanches in 1866. Besides two murders, three children were carried off including Sam Savage (shown below).
Sam's marker is three miles north of Mineral Wells on FM 1821 at the Stagg's Prairie Cemetery.
On the way to Weatherford from Mineral Wells, FM 113 to the north toward Garner passes near historical markers for Cranfill and Youngblood at the Authon and Fondren Cemeteries. Back on 180 to Weatherford and a few miles east, you will pass the historical marker for Light, Doss and Newberry at the Porter Cemetery.
