~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The Jackson family (Mother Father and four children) was going to meet Their Friends "The Kilpatrick's" at the Pecan Bayou and had gone there to camp.

There are different stories of what actually happened but apparently the family drove the ox wagon upon a band of Comanche Indians in the grove of tree's, possiblily thinking it was the Kilpatrick's.

An account of the Massacre, written in 1958, a hundred years after the tragedy, The Comanche's killed the Father, Joshua Moses Jackson and 18 year old daughter first, the mother, Lydia Jackson and Baby or youngest child (NOTE: Texas Rangers had guessed the age of the youngest girl to be about 5 years old),

The Comanches then took Andrew Jackson (8 year old son) and Annie (10 year old daughter) as captives.

Before the Texas Rangers and a posse went after the Comanche's the neighbors buried the family, The mother and Father in one grave and the the young woman and child in the other grave.

The graves were encircled by sand stone and in 1958, the stones were still there marking the graves.
