Hello. I am searching for the resting place of Margaret Agnes (HALL) McEWEN. Margaret was the wife of William Jasper McEWEN. Wm. J. was the son of Nancy Oldham McEWEN and stepson of Pleasant Earl THORP.
In a small booklet written by Wm. and Margaret's daughter Nora, she writes: "They (Nancy and P.E.) selected as their home site a beautiful valley surrounded by rolling hills that were covered with live oak trees. Nearby there was a never failing creek of clear, cold water (later called STROUD's Creek) and also a sulphur spring, the water of which was supposed to be a cure for many ills."
"In 1867 he (William Jasper McEWEN) was married to Margaret Agnes HALL of Weatherford. He built their home a few miles from Thorp Spring near a fresh water stream which was afterward known as McEWEN CREEK. I was born there in 1869."
I have made the journey to Thorp Spring and have been unable to locate either the resting place of Margaret Agnes (HALL) McEWEN or the place referred to as MCEWEN CREEK.
Can anyone help me locate the former home place of Wm. J. and Margaret McEWEN, and perhaps McEWEN CREEK?
Thanks so much for your assistance - I hope to return this summer and resume my search.
