Joel A. Harris went out one morning looking for some calves when he came upon some ten or twelve Indians. He had a muzzle loader and a rifle with him. He immediately dismounted and ran for brush. The Indian party were shooting at him and one of the arrows hit the stock of his gun, knocking a chunk out of it. He knew then that he had to kill some of the Indians. About that time, someone came out to the edge of the bluff above them and started hollering. The Indians became frightened and ran off, taking the horse and saddle. This location has since been known as "Defeat Hollow". (Information given by unknown grandchild of J.A. Harris)

"When the Japanese were threatening Asia, back in 1942, Norma Holman, above, of Burnet heard the Call from Kelly Air Force Base for women to run the machines of industry while the men were at war. She went to work in the engine shop repairing propellers and turned out to be so good that by the wsar's end, she was an inspector. This week, as the Chinese Communists were threatening Asia, Mrs. Holman was still on the job with her template, inspecting propellers. She had done her job so well that Kelly officials kept her on through five uneasy years of peace, to train the new generation of women workers."

She was the great-granddaughter of a circuit riding Methodist minister, Valentine Cook, and she was true to that faith throughout her life. She was reared in Burnet and was always one of us, loving the land where she was nurtured. In 1936 she and Chester Cuthell Husted were married, and their children are Harris Duncan Husted and Jamie Akenhead."
