the Frio and Nueces Rivers. The Frio River

Texas in 1847, and he was considered one of
the first white settlers in Frio Canyon in
1853. The town of Leakey, Texas was

Indian fighter, and Pioneer. Several
markers are located on the courthouse
grounds to commemorate the history of Leakey
and its founders, John and Nance Leakey.
