From the Galveston Daily News, November 17, 1870
"The mail rider from Austin to Sisterdale says a party of Indians chased him on the 9th. The same day the Indians took capture a negro boy, 13 years old, from the town of Comfort, Kerr County."
KGS note: This boy was Jack Hardy, who eventually escaped and returned to his family. His descendants still live in Kerr County.
