The Caddo Herald
September 9, 1899
Mr. and Mrs. McIntyre, movers from Walker county, Texas, camped on the south bank of Blue last Monday night. In the morning when Mr. McIntyre arose to make a fire, he discovered an infant apparently three or four days old in a box near his camp. Mr. McIntyre states from appearance it had been brought in a two horse conveyance, but could discover no tracks except of the vehicle and horses and thinks that the party who left it there set it out of the carriage without getting out. One of the tracks made by one of the horses indicted a broken shoe, half gone; another hoof has grown out in front; the other seemed to be unshod. Mr. and Mrs. McIntyre brought the child to Caddo and gave it to Mr. and Mrs. Wilson. It is a pretty little girl and has kept quiet ever since it was discovered. When discovered it was attired in a neat white dress large enough for a girl of two or three years and wrapped in a piece of red flannel. Mr. and Mrs. Wilson have no children and welcome the little stranger to their home.
