On the Pendencia

A Lipan and Mexican bandito attack was perpetrated on families living along the Pendencia Creek in late 1859 in what is now Dimmit County, just a few miles south of the Zavala County line and a few miles east of the Maverick County line. L.D. Lafferty tells sweeping details of the horror in the The Old Rover book, while carefully omitting the fact that he lived there with a his 6 children and their mother.
