*Palo Pinto County History: On March 2, 1866, a raiding party of Comanche Indians attacked the home of Bolin Savage, a Confederate veteran, on Sanchez Creek. "Mrs. A.J. Hunter, wife of the Parker County Judge, saw this attack from a distance and alerted her husband, who rode with haste into Weatherford to get help in chasing these Indians. Mrs. M.C. Hendrick (Martha Hunter Hendrick, niece of the judge), who also lived on Sanchez Creek, east of the Savages, saw the Indians pass near her home with some of the settlers horses. After hearing a disturbance to the west, she soon followed and found that the Indians had killed and scalped Bolin Savage and carried away little five-year-old Sam Savage.
