A Really Big Goof…

It still lurks in my mind’s “crannies,” jumping to the forefront of my thoughts more often than I’d like. It was a single sentence--uttered by someone whose name I don’t know--imparting an important truth usually requiring paragraphs, chapters or even volumes.

Cave paintings at Battle Creek, more settlers to Stephens County

Cave paintings at Battle Creek, more settlers to Stephens County

A few weeks ago, I wrote about the settlers at Battle Creek, but failed to mention the significant Indian paintings on the rocks and walls of the bluffs surrounding Battle Creek. These consist of crudely drawn buffalo, bears and stick figures of Indians. Also, there is a carved name of a white man, J.W. White, dated 1857. That might be worth exploring for some adventurers. I might need to get the present-day McKelvains (Dana and Burrell) to give me a tour.
