The 1880 Bosque Co census lists a McGILL family headed by Samuel McGILL, age 43.  His
occupation is listed as "Gin Wright"which leads me to believe he was involved in the construction
operation of a cotton gin.  According to the info on his children, they lived in Texas and, possibly,
Bosque Co. for several years.  Any info available would be greatly appreciated.

I am trying to locate the area of a community called Dyersville, I am assuming that it was in
Bosque county but may have been in Hill. My wild guess is that it was somewhere between
Morgan, Kopperl, Blum to Whitney. I realize this is a pretty large area and at best is a wild guess.
I would appreciate any information anyone might have regarding it's location.
