Texas Ranger James Coryell and two compatriots headed out from Fort Milam (near Waco) on May 27, 1837 and found a bee tree about a mile away. They cut the tree down and began feasting on the honey.
That’s when some Caddo Indians attacked. Coryell died at the first shot; the others got away. They came back the next day and buried the body at the site.
Investigators believe they found the grave in 2010—but tests on the remains were inconclusive.
