His father's name was John Dosher. His mother's name was Rachel. His grandfather's name was Peter Dosher. His grandmother's name was Allie Dosher. He then goes on telling of his days in Tex. He went back to home to LacLeod, County, MO. In the spring of 1850 he married to Miss V. M. Eddings. Then in the fall of 1851 they moved to TX. The rest he talks about his life as a scout. On the last page of his diary he wrote a little story that his grandfather had told him when they were in Indiana. I have sat and listened to my grandfather talk and tell about being forted up in the block house in Kentucky. In 12 mi. of the old crab orchard. I heard him tell about him and 15 others being at the old crab orchard after fruit when the indians ran out to them and killed all but 3. Grandpa Spears was killed and the indians cut him up in little pieces, but he killed several before they got him. Grandpa Dosher had just rode up, got down and hitched his horses when he heard the indians give the yell. He wheeled and ran into the bottom, taking down a trail, he jumped out in a bunch of green briars and sat down. He had been ther only a moment when two indians come right at him and stopped and talked a few moments and went back towards the orchard. Grandpa sat ther til everything was quiet; then he crawled out, crossed the river, and crawled into the bluff and laid ther until sundown. While lying ther, the other 2 who made their escape came to the other side of the river. There was a big fat man and a boy. The man said to the boy, we can both ride your horse and the boy got down to let him in the saddle. He got up and rode off and left the boy standing; then grandpa let himself be known to the boy and they went to Ft. Geather. One day when they were killing hogs at the blockhouse at the fort, the indian ran onto them on the branch where they were cleaning them. When they saw the indians, they all ran for the fort. Grandpa was running and cought him by the hunting shirt and he said. "Dam it, John, turn me loose." He thought it was John Barber. He looked and saw it was an indian, then he threw his arms back and let him take his shirt and he ran on to the post. Some of the women were in the creek above and there was a patch of cornfield, pumpkin and vines. The men hollared to them in dutch to run in the pumkin vines and hide. The indians did not get any of them. My grandfather's name on my fathers's side was Peter Dosher and my grandfather on my mother's side was Samuel Spears. End.
