What a great summary of Mayview. I grew up two miles from Mayview. By that time the only thing left was the church and long before I was out of school the church was tore down.

One correction. W.H. Birdsell did not have a middle name. Or at least according to when he filed for his homestead. It clearly stated there was no middle name. I believe the entry should be W. and M. Birdsell. Or Wm. Birdsell. It's hard to tell, since his name was William and his wife's name was Maria(h). They were my great, great grandparents and their farm is still in our family.
