Death: Jul., 1865
Frio County
Texas, USA

On July 4 1865, Indians chased Ed Burleson, but he managed to reach his home in safety. The following neighbors started on the trail of the redmen: namely Levi English, A.L. Franks, G.W. Daugherty, A.D. Allen, Ed Burleson, W.C. Bell, Dean Oden, Bud English, John Berry, Frank and Dan Williams. A fight ensued in which Dean Oden, Dan Williams and Bud English were killed. Five others were wounded and only three escaped unscathed. Dean Oden, with his two comrades who fell on this fateful day rest in a long deserted and almost forgotten cemetery near the old Martin ranch, located above the mouth of the Leona River and a short distance above and overlooking present Frio State Park. This is from www.rootsweb.com/~txfrio/friocolorfulhistory.html. I copied this in 2001 but cannot find it on the net now. Judy Mount
