Inscription.  This area served as a resting place for Apache war parties during the raids of the 1880's. Near here Felix B. Knox, a cattleman and gambler, stayed behind to face Indians while his wife, children, and hired man escaped in a buckboard. Out of respect for his valor, they did not mutilate his body.
 
Erected 1964 by Arizona Development Board and Arizona Highway Department.
