Friends and families joined a wagon train made up of relatives and neighbors who had grown up together in the Laurel Hill Community, attended the Old Carolina Presbyterian Church, and school in Neshoba County, MS. Most were related by blood or marriage. The wagon train was made up of people named Foster, Gamblin, Kirkland, McKay, McDonald, Stribling, Wilkison, and others. Most of the men had been in either Williams Company, MS Cavalry or Scotland Guard of CSA.

In late 1867 the wagon train set out from MS and circled north through southern AR because the farther north they went, the easier the stream crossings were. They first went to the area of Whitewright in Grayson Co, but they failed to find enough water and timber so they came to the Reilly Springs community to settle in Hopkins Co., TX, in 1868. They later purchased land south of Reilly Springs. They farmed, raised livestock, and operated a station on the stagecoach line from Quitman to Sulphur Springs keeping fresh horses, food, & lodging. They established Reilly Springs Presbyterian Church.
