Query: Old French Fort in Wood County

According to rumor there is an old french fort until about 1830 near Winnsboro.I am told it is on or near the old Billy Jack Attaway land.  Near where the spring branch meets the Sabine.  Fort La Dout but I’m not sure of the spelling.  How do I find more on the fort and do you know anyone I can contact.

  1. Georgia, Found in our book # l, “Looking Back at Wood County,” an article abt the Fort Le Dout. Original article appeared in The Winnsboro News, Thursday, January 13, 1994. It is quite long and is 6 column wide with picture of President, Bill Jones, Wood County His-torical Commission at the site on FM852.
