Historical Marker: 

Texas history is woven into almost every piece of land. Due to research and two inscribed metal plates, it is believed that in 1878 Sheriff Jim Owens killed two horse thieves on this ranch. Allen Ramsey wrote, “These two outlaw’s graves are located on the east shore of Palo Pinto Lake approximately north, northwest of Randall Miller Power Plant.

From bits and pieces of the story that has been handed down, it seems these men had stolen some horses.  When sheriff, Jim Owens, surprised them somewhere on Lake Creek, a running battle took place.  One of the outlaws fell mortally wounded.  Later in the chase the second outlaw fell and died.  By that time Sheriff Owens had only one shot left in his gun.

The second outlaw was buried at the spot where he fell.  By that time the other outlaw was dead, and was brought and buried by the other one.  A head marker was made for both graves by splitting a block of cedar.  Years later Andrew Martin of Lone Camp passed by the graves one day and noticed that one of the markers was almost rotted away.  He visited two sons of Sheriff Owens and got the dates of the killing.  He carved two stones with the dates on them and replaced the wooden markers.” When you see this ranch, ask Brandon to show you the historic site.


The Seller is not believed to own any portion of the Mineral Estate.
