+ Hays Free Press February 20, 2013 NEIGHBORS Page 3C Texas History Continued from pg. lC numbering 250 men, com- manded by Major (John Coffee) Jack Hays." He was assigned to a squad of ten headquartered "on the Trinity River, something like halfway between where Dallas and Fort Worth have grown to be cities." Of all his memorable experiences as a Ranger on patrol, none withstood the ravages of time quite like a strange sight in a snowstorm. "We saw a horse at a distance standing still with a saddle on. We found his rider frozen to death with a noose of the bridle reins around one wrist." In the spring of 1846, Barry and his comrades invited a passerby to breakfast. That was how they learned war with Mexico was about to break out on the border. Jack Hays saved a place for the North Carolinian in the First Texas Mounted Rifles, a regiment made up of Rang- ers and other hard-fighting frontiersmen. Membership in the unit was Barry's ticket for nearly every major battle and a front-row seat for an unforgettable incident. Bright and early one morn- ing, a detachment of Mexican lancers surprised the sleeping Texans. To give his men time to wake up and prepare for battle, Hays "rode out front with his saber in hand and challenged the colonel of the lancers to meet him halfway between the lines to fight a saber fight." The enemy officer "ad- vanced waving his saber, while his horse seemed to dance rather than prance. Within a few feet of the Mexican, Hays pulled a pistol and shot him dead from his horse." The lancers "charged us like mad hornets" making three costly passes through the Texan lines. Marveling at the enemy soldiers' courage, Barry wrote, "I have never called a Mexican a coward since." After the one-sided war, it was back to North Carolina for Barry and marriage to the sweetheart who had waited for him. The newlyweds set up housekeeping in Navarro County, where voters drafted the office-shy breadwinner for three terms as sheriff and one as county treasurer. In late 1855, Barry moved west to Bosque County on the edge of the frontier. But plans of spending more time with his growing family were spoiled by the depredations of so-called "reservation Indi- ans" from their government- protected sanctuary on the Brazos. Barry devoted the next decade, including the entire Civil War, to fighting Indians and retrieving the horses and human captives taken on their raids. He eventually suc- ceeded in bringing about the relocation of the troublesome tribes north of the Red River thereby averting all-out war with the U.S. Army. The familiar figure with the shoulder-length hair and fondness for buckskin dab- bled in politics in the 1880's and 1890%, first as an active supporter of the Grange and later with the People's Party. After a failed bid for state treasurer in 1898, Buck Barry retired to his ranch near Wal- nut Springs. He completed his autobiography, published in 1932, before going totally blind and dying on his eighty- fifth birthday in 1906. .Last chancel Three "Best of This Week in Texas History" collections for the price of two: "Hurricanes, Tornadoes & Other Disasters,""Secession & Civil War" and "Revolution & Republic."
