William (Johnstone)  Gilliland and his wife, Mary Barbour Gilliland,  were killed by Comanches in the early 1840's near Carlos Rancho in Refugio County.  This includes accounts of their daughter and two of the children's rescuers, plus probate records relating to the care of the children.

This is a wonderful account written by Mrs. Plummer in 1990, at the age of 85. 
It is a warm and loving insight into her life, and it is well worth the look and the time it takes the pages to load.
