Historical Marker
     Established 1835 with one-room log cabin as settlers' dwelling. In 1841, a party of Indians was alleged to have killed, scalped, and mutilated the body of young Henry Earthman, who was hunting horses (with his brother Fields) near their home. Fields Earthman took the news of the murder to Rutersville College (8 Mi. E), and nearly all boys at school spent the ensuing three weeks hunting fruitlessly for Indians. Present house was built 1877. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark-1972.
