Here's a bit of the story of Charles Barnard and Juana Cavasos.

The bronze depicts Charles Barnard and Juana Cavasos Barnard, along with Juana's horse Pigeon.According to the legend, written by famed Texas writer John Graves, Mr.Barnard was the founder of Glen Rose and first moved to the area to operate an Indian trading post with his brother. Mrs. Williams said Juana was known for her beauty, horsemanship and brav-ery. She was also appreciated as a midwife throughout the county.“For the monument Mr. Summers is creating, Juana is riding side saddleon the horse and it will truly be a one-of-a-kind piece,” Mrs. Williams said.“She was beautiful and CharlesBarnard fell in love with her ‘at first sight’ and ransomed her from theComanche Indians. The Indians hadcaptured her but did not kill her because she demonstrated bravery.”.

And a little more history from The Handbook of Texas Online.

Here's an MP3 (audio file) of the speeches in case you can't see the flash video.

UPDATE MAY 22 2016- redid the video on Youtube now.
