A year and a half ago Meghan's Toyota Camry was hit by lightning up by Wichita Falls while speeding down the highway! The blast blew out the engine, flattened tires, and shattered the back window! The car was TOTALED! The insurance money helped them buy a late model Kia Sportage.

The very next day Meghan had a Press Pass from the Coldwater, Kansas newspaper ( She was a Senior in High School ) and she got to enter the restricted scene.......she saw a coffee table sitting in the middle of the rubble where a house used to be....there was a deck of cards sitting on the table with ONE CARD flipped over! THE HOUSE WAS GONE!

Daisy Bradford No. 3....."Dad" Joiner's gusher oil well that ushered in the Great East Texas Oil Boom of the 1930s and 40s...




The Daisy Bradford was drilled outside of Henderson, Texas in Rusk County....Soon wells were being drilled all over East Texas....including 1100 wells in Kilgore alone!
