The following shared by member # 47137635: "The Weekly Democratic Statesman, Austin, TX, February 22, 1872 Indians in Llano and Brunet.
On Tuesday night last, early in the evening, the Indians passed down to Llano county, through Burnet, and came to within three and a half miles above Bluffton, and what is there called the “Colorado Saline.” They shot at William Miller, the arrow striking him on the side, passing through his clothes and at most making but a slight wound. These same Indians have been seen as late as Thursday last, the 15th inst., in the Crownover settlement, but what damage has been done in the way of murdering and stealing we have not learned. These facts have been furnished us by D. C. Cowan, Esq., an early settler – in fact the first of the Fisher and Miller Colony – in Llano County, and is a frontiersman of undoubted grit, and a Democrat of the first water."
