Obituary for Margaret Campbell McGuire

NOTES: In the year 1861, Altemus McGuire and wife Margaret, and their family left the state of Iowa and travelled by wagon, together with thirty or forty other families, to the state of California. In this group was A.G. Oliver and his family of 3 children, Leon (born 29 Sept 1857), John, and Alma. Fate decreed that these 2 families would share many experiences and a lasting and enduring friendship throughout their lifetime. It was in the fall of 1862 that these weary pioneers reached the "Golden West"--each family shifting for themselves to engage in whatever line of work they were best adapted. The McGuires settled at Petaluma, California and the Olivers at Sebastapool, California.

Possessing an adventuresome spirit and hearing of great opportunities in the big state of Texas, the McGuires and Oliver families left California in 1876. They settled on neighboring ranches in Burnet County, Texas. Both the McGuire and Oliver ranches were known for their early hospitality.

Read the transcribed diary of A.G. Oliver, describing his trip from California to Texas in 1876.

Children of Altemus McGuire and Margaret Campbell: William Campbell MCGUIRE (20 Jan 1844-) & Sarah RAINES

NOTES: After a number of years in Texas, William carried out his promise to his wife that they would return to California to make their home. They returned to Santa Rosa, California, near Petaluma, and lived there until their deaths. They are now buried at Petaluma.

All the daughters attended the city schools of Burnet, Texas. May, Ella and Pearl eventually returned to California where they married. But Myrtle, the youngest, married in Texas and remained in Texas for the duration of her life.
