The Muncey Massacre
(homesite and graves about 1 mile east)

McBain Jameson and Jeremiah Muncey settled in this vicinity in 1840 and 1842.  While hunting in late 1844, William Rice and Leonard Searcy came to Muncey’s hut and found the savagely slain bodies of Jameson, Muncey, Mrs. Muncey, and a small child, and recognized signs of an Indian raid.  The men sped out to their own sons, who were hunting nearby.  Young Searcy was found safe, but Rice had been killed.  Two Muncey boys disappeared never to be found.  Another was at Throckmorton settlement.  That was the last tragic Indian raid in Collin County.

Historical marker relocated to this site in 1998.  The site of the Muncey home and graves of the victims are approximately one mile northwest of this site.
