Excerpt from Life of the Notorious Desperado Cullen Baker, From His Childhood to His Death: With a Full Account of All the Murders He Committed
The country was now rid of two powerful tyrants, who had kept the citizens in terror for years, and they having no special successor... s, their forces were scattered to the four winds of the earth, and the country was permitted to breathe free and live in peace once more, rejoicing at the happy thought that the weapons of a relentless foe had fallen to. Molder in the dust.
Cullen was yet too young to take part with any public affair, but was noted for his shrewd, quick-witted and notica ble character, which far surpassed that of other boys who were growing up to manhood with him. He possessed a natural relish for frontier life, and usually devoted his leisure hours in the forest with no other companion than his favorite ri¿e, pursuing various species of wild game which was found in almost any portion of the Red river country.
Cullen's father, after remaining at Spanish Bluffs a few years, removed some forty 'miles, in a Southern direction. And settled on the South bank of the Sulphur Fork of Red river, a few miles west of the Arkansas line, in a County then known as Cass, now known as Davis.
