TEXASMoore or Hartley
aka Exum Switch,
About 16 miles NW of Dumas
in a Pecan Shell|
There is no history currently available
map says Exum but the old tank sign reads Exum Switch. There was no road sign.
about the ambiguity of this strange little ghost. Your map
showing Exum in Moore has Spur due west in Hartley, right where my Exum is. Notice
a second Spur on your map just above Wilcoe. (I am still using my old scroll-loaded
ProMap for Windows 3.1.) Whatever the name, Google Maps has the scale house and
tanks in Hartley County.
