States: Texas: Eastland
I don't know exactly when it happened, but at Olden Texas formerly known as Olden Switch, there was a Magnolia Oil company and they had an explosion that killed around 12 men so I was told. After that the company closed its doors in Olden as I was told that no one wanted to work where so many of the same family had been lost. The town soon died out and now has a population of about 250 give or take. When I lived there, there were still remanents of the old houses and tanks. You might contact the eastland texas newspaper for someone that might be able to guide you further in your search.
