In Reply to: How did the Nacogdoches get its name by Kelly Wimberly of 514

My understanding was that the Indian chief sent his two sons, one to east and one to the west, with the understanding that each would own all the land he could cover in (a given amount of time). Nacogdoches went west and the city was named for him. Natchitoches went east and that city was named for him.
