* 1880 Federal Census for Coryell County, Texas.
* From the book titled "Coryell County Families":
"...Allen Carrigan and Obediance Carrigan traveled in a covered wagon from Maury County, Tennessee in 1850 to the southwestern part of Coryell County, four miles southwest of Bee House. They pre-empted 160 acres of land. There they built a large log cabin near an ever-flowing spring located on a mountainside.
"The Indians were a threat at all times. The children were taught mostly at home. Most travel was done in wagons or on horse back. There was no church near enough to attend. Several families met in their homes weekly for scripture reading, songs, and prayer."
