The first settlers came to the Stonewall area in the early 1830’s. Colonel Edwards moved his family and possessions from Society Hill, South Carolina to a place they named the Bee Gum Community. This is approximately three miles east of the present Town of Stonewall.
Sometime later, friends of Colonel Edwards moved to the North DeSoto Area. Among these were the Witherspoons, Marshalls, Hollembeaks, and others. The women came in carriages, the men on horses while their belongings were brought in wagons drawn by oxen and mules. The slaves followed with the livestock.
After building homes and beginning a farmer’s life, more provisions were needed. They were ordered from New Orleans and reached Shreve’s Port on the Red River. It took time to get to Shreve’s Port in those days. They went by wagons over the rough, muddy roads or paths, reaching Shreve’s Port after a whole day's travel. These trips were not made often.
Soon many families from other communities and states came to make their homes here. Some of the families that have done much toward the building of this community are Williamson, Powell, Andrews, Loftus, Nicholson, Berry, Gilmer, Lafitte, Hall, and many others.
They did an excellent job and got it done easy, 0 complaints.
