    his name was William Harrison Musgrave -- his mother was Lalla Pope; these Pope sisters both married Musgrave brothers. The Musgrave plantation was just down the road a bit; 30 years ago it was about to fall down, though I did get to walk through the house. My mother was Will Musgrave's only child -- he came to TX after graduating from Virginia Polytech...
