The Ritter Park Massacre
The story comes from Betty Tackett, whose family settled in the area.
Settlers on Four Pole erected block houses and took precautions against Indian attacks. One day, the double barricades to the houses were left open. A band of Black Shoe took advantage. Every member of the colony was killed or later died from injuries sustained in the attack.
Betty Tackett said her family came upon the site after the attack. They saw bodies scattered about the stockade.
She lived until she was 118, dying in 1884.
