Lake LBJ and the Rebirth of Kingsland, Chapter 6: Margaret Williams Dotson

Kingsland has had a longer and more interesting history than most of the towns around Lake LBJ. And while today the lake shapes and defines the community, Kingsland (first called Kingsville) was a genuine wild west settlement almost 70 years before the lake (first called Granite Shoals Lake) was formed in 1951. Kingsville was big enough to need a two-story schoolhouse as far back as 1885, and the first teacher there was a 16-year-old Kingsville girl who had earned a teaching certificate by passing a state exam; her name was Mary Margaret “Peggie” Loe. Peggie Loe later married Albert Williams, and the couple was blessed with nine children and 44 grandchildren, several of whom grew up to be prominent citizens in Kingsland.
