I did consult with Paul. There has been about 4 or 5 possible locations of the McLaury Ranch in the Valley.
I think I have found the exact location, which I will be glad to share once I finish my research in late October.
No, as far as I can tell, the McLaurys had no record of tax problems. Due to the inconvenience behind the OK Corral, taxes were not paid on time.
I will share once I finish my research. I would give you a educated hint, but someone may challenge me to a gunfight at high noon.

            gobs - Just to be sure what we're saying when we talk of their "leaving town". It isn't like having the motor run while you quick dash in for a last-minute errand. They had a couple of brief erran... more

              Paul ... thanks again ... must find that book ... I've never had a car [or a boat], so I do know how these things work ... in Sheffield we had possibly the best cheap, frequent, regular bus service in... more
