The Killough Massacre was the bloodiest Indian attack in East Texas. On October 5, 1838, Indians attacked and killed eighteen (18) members of the extended Killough family who farmed in present-day northwestern Cherokee County, an area within the proposed Indian land grant. It is not known whether the attackers were Cherokees or Kickapoos or other Indians, but due to the Mexican agent Vincent Cordova’s influence, the Cherokees received the brunt of the criticism.
