Our October issue of WACO TODAY came in our mail this week, with our
Daily Waco paper. It had a better than average listing of historic sites
and prehistoric and present business, including a Tourist visit to
Comanche Peak Nuclear plant. This magazine is free in local supermarkets
and convenience stores. It also mentions the metal still which is on
Glen Rose Square in the museum. Also the George Bernard Mill, first
Marks- English Hospital. For more on the mill, go to Bosque County Museum
in Clifton and get the book printed in Clifton
Seems Juana was a spunky Teenager- a daughter of a Mr. Cavasos who had a
Spanish Land Grant below Corpus Christi. She and 2 other girls were
captured by Comanche Indians and she took no abuse- she was respected.
Juana Cavasos was finally brought into the Torey's Trading House Creek
near Waco by the Comanches and traded to George Bernard for supplies,
blankets, and such. George married Juana and moved to Glen Rose where he
built the historic Bernard's MillFarmers were beginning to grow corn with
barb wire boundaries.
When Cynthia Ann Parker was recaptured by Texas Rangers, they brought
Cynthia Ann to Bernard's home in Glen Rose as Juana could speak the
Cherokee language which 'Cinde Ann" had grown up with. After a few weeks
visit, Rangers brought her to Waco and old Fort Parker where she was
born. She grieved over her children left in Oklahoma.
Mr. Stephen had an ox cart freight line before Butterfield Stage across
Bosque County- he lived in the Panther Cave between Walnut Springs,
Glen Rose and Chalk Mountain, overlooking the Glass - Crossroads area
and Nancy Smith Cemetery- land from Republic of Texas for widow of Deaf
Smith of Texas Revolution. towards Glen Rose. Mr Stephen had Ox cart
freight line across Bosque County from Elm Mott RR Depot to Fort Graham
and Fort Griffin, and his wife had twins while living in the cave, where
she later killed a panther. His brother was Freight agent in Elm Mott
and a third brother had a former (?) slave (?) who came alone to present
Stephenville. This Black Gentleman built first house in Stephenville
area, and 2 or 3 years later, a third Stephen brother came to join him
and built a second house. These Stage and Ox Cart lines came across parts
of Bosque and Hood Counties- possibly across Johnson County near Sowell
Ranch, which Texas Prisoners built below Five Oaks and Goatneck in
Now, on your way to the Heart of Texas Fair, stop in Clifton and buy
JUANA at the museum and pick up a free edition of the WACO TODAY, with
the Glen Rose article in it.
