The Village of Alda, Home of the Murdock Site
Very close to Overton is the tiny village of Alda. Could it be that our beloved Aunt Alda was named for this little town near where her parents once lived? See her name embroidered on the sunflower quilt she made in 1932. This beautiful quilt now belongs to my sister Sue.
We visited the Murdock Site in search of swales, the name used for ruts left by the many wagon trains heading west. We could not see them here.
