BARTON, EDMONDSON, MCDOWEL posted by Susan Innmon Nelson on Friday, November 14, 1997
I have a letter dated 5/15/1868, written by my gr-gr-grandmother Nancy MCDOWEL to her children telling of the murder of John Lewis McDOWEL. He was murdered by a man named EDMONDSON while the family was visiting "up on Mukewater/Mirkewater" and after a night of drinking with Ben BARTON. He was shot while leaving "the grocery." The letter ends by asking her children to come quickly and bring "bread stuff if you can for we are about out & there is none in the country hardly." An obituary for one of John Lewis McDOWEL's sons states that the family moved to McCullough County TX in 1864. Any ideas about place names, etc? Susan Innmon Nelson
