I was told Nacogdoches was a twin (Indian) and he settled there in Nacogdoches. His brother settled in Louisiana and his name was Natchitoches. The Old Stone Fort is in Nacogdoches by or on the property of Stephen F. Austin State University. This is what I found:
THE LEGEND OF NACOGDOCHES
Nacogdoches is named for the Caddo family of Indians who lived in the eastern part of the State.Legend has it that Nacogdoches, one of two sons of a Caddo chief, settled the area between the Lanana and Banita creeks and established it as an Indian trading post while his brother is said to have established the community of Natchitoches, Louisiana on the banks of the Cane River. The two settlements are equidistant from the Sabine River.
The large burial and ceremonial mounds of the Caddos are still visible within the City today. Calle Del Norte, a north/south route through Nacogdoches, is believed to have begun as an Indian trading trail and is thought by some historians to be the oldest existing thoroughfare in North America.
