who were the Greenhaw family attacked by Indians in Blanco or Hays County Texas?

I'm doing some Greenhaw research, and saw a posting on one of the query boards, has information about a Greenhaw family who was traveling from Gonzales to Blanco Co. Texas, a Greenhaw man, his wife, baby and 12 year old son. They were going to Blanco Co to visit relatives. When they didn't arrive, the family went to see about them, found that they had been attacked and killed by Indians, and the 12 year old was kidnapped. This was found in a Hay's Co. genealogical quarterly, and no names or dates were given. I was wondering if anyone has news of this family, and also I found posted on the Blanco Co. gen page, land records for a Lillie Greenhaw. Who was Lillie Greenhaw, who was her husband? I have records for Eli L. Greenhaw, who later lived there, and served in the Civil War. I am wondering if the Indian attacks pertained to some of his relatives? If anyone knows of any Indian attacks on any Greenhaw persons, I'd appreciate the information. My gr gr grandfather Banion Greenhaw was also attacked by Indians, when he moved from Louisiana to Ark...sometime between 1865-1870, his little 4 year old daughter was kidnapped and they never saw nor heard from her again. I suppose that Banion had traveled somewhere into Texas, probably to visit relatives, during his trip to Arkansas. I don't know when or where the attack on Banion occurred. But, the Blanco Co attack occurred, the article said, about the time of the last of the Indian hostilities around the San Marcos area.....no one so far seems to know when this was. I'd appreciate any help. Thanks, Penny.
