Does anyone know for sure if anything of Daileyville exists today? Everything I have found says that nothing is left of the town. In the spring I went on the 33-ranch just outside of Kenedy and took some pictures of a couple of older buildings on the property. Recently I found an old picture of the Daileyville School. One of the buildings I took a picture of looks remarkably similar to the older picture. According to all of my research, however, Daileyville has completely disappeared and was supposedly located at a different location than where I found the older buildings (I also found the remains of a gristmill, and another building). Does anyone have any ideas? Is it possible that I have found a town which has supposedly been gone for over 100 years? I was just wondering what everyone thought and if anyone may have any records showing it to still be there. Also if you have any old pictures of Daileyville that I can use for comparison that would also be very helpful. You can e-mail me at usn_sailor_03@yahoo.com
Thank you.
