This month in Texas history
Date: January 5, 1865
On this day, about 100 Indians from Indian territory raided a new settlement in Cooke County. They killed nine people and stole many horses. The raid is often referred to as the last indian raid in Cooke County. Five years later, four brothers named Ross established a general store at the site. The first post office there was opened in 1872. According to local legend, the nearubiquitous outlaw Sam Bass used tthe area as a rendezvous. The town of Rosston still celebrates Same Bass Day on the third Saturday of July
