The famous Salt Creek fight or massacre site is near Flint Creek, close to the old Murphy station in northern Young County. The battle occurred on Monday, May 16, 1869.

W.C. Kutch
J.W. Gray

Rube Secris
Joe Woody
Negro Dick, a cook
The cowboys were armed with cap and ball six-shooters and were attacked by 57 painted Indians. The cowboys took their stand in a depression that drained into one of the prongs of the Salt Creek. Their position was about five miles southeast of the present city of Olney, in Young County.

William Crow was instantly killed during the early stages of the battle. According to family records, a rifle ball penetrated his head; George Lemley was wounded in the face and before the fight was over, every man was wounded, except Joe Woody and Henry Harrison.

When the Indians retreated, William Crow had been dead for several hours. S.L. "Shap" Carter had a severe arrow wound and rifle ball wound. John Lemley was mortally wounded in the stomach with an arrow. J.W. Gray had been twice shot with rifle balls, oen in the body and one in the leg. W.C. Kutch had two arrow heads in his knee and one in his shoulder. Jason McClain had been shot twice with arrows. Rube Secris had his mouth badly torn and his knee shattered. George Lemley had his face badly torn and an arrow in his shoulder. Ira Graves and negro Dick were also wounded.

Henry Harrison was sent to the Harmonson ranch according to the Harmonson family, which was several miles away near present Newcastle, Young County, Texas.
The next morning a wagon appeared with A.C. Tackett, Bob Whitten, and Theodore Miller assisting the cowboys. Messengers were dispatched for doctors from Palo Pinto County and Fort Richardson. C.L. "Shap" Carter died the next day and his death was the third victim of the battle.
