       MOLINA, MIGUEL (?–?). Father Miguel Molina, a Franciscanqv, was the lone survivor of a Comanche attack on Santa Cruz de San Sabá mission in 1758. According to his own testimony, he heard screams about a cannon shot distant from the mission just after sunrise on March 16, 1758. Fearing an Indian attack, he hurried to the church to notify the other priests.
