Historical Marker
    Residents of this part of Archer County in the 1880s included Irish native James Colgan and his wife, Nancy. Most other area families were of Bohemian descent, with names including Kulhanek, Bohac, Kunkel and Pechacek. The GT&W Railroad came in 1910, and the town of Megargel was established. That same year, Dr. W.T. Webb buried his two-day-old son, Arza, the first interred at what became the community cemetery. Others buried here include military veterans of conflicts dating to the Civil War. An association maintains the cemetery, preserving the link to the area's rich history.
