William Schmalsle, frontiersman and scout for US Army. When the Lyman wagon train was besieged by 400 Indians in the Panhandle of Texas, it was Schmalsle who slipped away, at night and alone, to ride 75 miles through hostile country to summon help for the soldiers. Later he was instrumental in the rescue of the youngest German sisters (Adelaide & Julia) from a Cheyenne camp on McClellan Creek, 10 miles south of where Pampa, Texas is now located.
