Death of Francis "Frank" Johnson

Added by dgs007 on 7 Apr 2007

 October 12, 1867, fifty five year old, Frank Johnson a patriarchal figure with a long , white beard, went to look for his horses. He didn't take his gun-and he didn't come home. His wife, Betsy wasn't too worried. Once before Frank had set out for a neighbor's house to get some cornmeal for breakfast and was gone for three months.(????) However, the men of the community decided not to wait that long to look for him. They found his body several miles from his home, scalped and shot with arrows.

Grave is at Little Salina Creek, Kimble Co., TX
