This is the second in a series of stories Miss Priss and I are going to share with you. These stories will take you to many interesting spots around Southeast Texas.
Back in 1866 there was a family that lived very near the banks of this creek. There were also indians living in the vicinity that were very friendly.
One day little Josh, the youngest of the 5 sons, was out playing while his brothers did their chores. At 5PM that evening mom rang the dinner bell but little Josh did not show up. After an extensive search over several weeks little Josh was never seen again. For years a legend was passed down in the indian tribe that inhabited this area. It was told that a young white child had saved the indian chiefs son who had fallen into the creek but in the process the young white child had perished. The indians, not wanting to be blamed, kept the secret and buried the child in the most sacred of grounds. They say when the moon is just right that you can see a young boy happily skipping along the creek bank with a tall indian chief, riding a white horse beside him to protect him. Is this perhaps the indian child who was able to grow up and become an indian chief thanks to the selfless act of little Josh all those years before? The descendants of this indian tribe believe this without a doubt. Do you dare to take this adventure during the light of the full moon????
