During the Spanish period in Texas, complex interactions between the American Indian groups and the Spanish and French sometimes culminated in violence with missions at the center. The Lipan Apache, however, had enemies among the Comanche and other northern Texas Indian groups, who, after learning that their enemies would be at the mission, attacked and burned the mission.
It was once called “the lost mission of Texas” because its exact location was unknown until the early s. The Lipan Apache, who had often raided the Spanish missions to the south near what is today San Antonio, entered into a peace treaty with the Spanish and reportedly requested a mission. The Lipan Apache were pragmatically seeking an ally and some protection from their enemies, which included the Comanche, Tejas, Tonkawas, and Bidais. Spanish officials were happy to pursue peace and establish a presence in an area they thought might soon be claimed by the French.
Lipan Apache warrior, Mine owner Don Pedro de Terreros offered to fund as many as 20 missions for a period of three years to pacify the Apache and other Plains tribes in the area. Ultimately, the mission was located a relatively distant four miles from the presidio and on the other side of the San Xavier River. Missionaries arrive In , Father Terreros and his missionaries, along with nine Tlaxcalans to help teach the catechism to mission neophytes, reached San Antonio.
Shortly, through messengers, they assembled a large group of Lipan Apaches, numbering 3, warriors, who were not interested in a mission or the missionaries.

The wound described in the Diary as others have relayed, is too vague or ambiguous a description for anything to be decided. Through and through thoractic penetrations were probably survivable when from a Brown Bess, provided the Ball entered at a trajectory from the square on front, or square on rear, which allowed it to pass in the interstitial areas where no major Blood Vessel or Organ or Bone would be effected beyond presumed contusion or abrasion short of perforation, leaving the recipient’s immune system to manage the debris or infection details.
Many instances of perforated Lungs were survived, also Time of year or probable ambient temperatures for the geography may infer degree and density of layered Clothing the recipient was wearing, also One nasty thing about big, soft, slow to moderate speed Lead ‘Balls’, is their tendency to pull strong cloth along with them Not according to my history classes on the other side of the pond.
A thoracic hit in that day was except in very rare cases fatal, similarly gut shots were fatal. The only way to be hit with a Brown Bess or similar of the day and be almost guaranteed to survive was by getting grazed. If the shot didn’t kill you immediately, then infection was the big killer. Pulling of clothing into the wound also led to much worse infections which at the time were mostly untreatable while larger pieces might be removed it was at the time impossible to remove all of them, or even find them and less risk was involved in removing the more easily found pieces and trusting to the immune system of the injured than digging the rest out.
