I grew up in Daggett, about the same time. Memories go to heck, sorry, I can't recall. Were you related to Mrs. Phelps?

I am Margie Phelps Stetson's grandaughter..the Ranch still exsists (whats left of it), Mrs. Marjorie Phelps Stetson passed away March of 2009 :( She had recently, some time prior, sold the ranch and moved to Arizona due to Alzheimers! We miss her very very much as well as the fun times we spent as a family on that Ranch!

Gray and his mother Marjorie Stephens moved to needles. I grew up with the McCunes in Valinda and spent some summers at the ranch.
I have not seen them in years. Tried locating them to know avail.

I am sitting in the living room of the main house right now. My inlaws live at the ranch as caretakers and I am fascinated with the history of this place so any information or pictures provided would be greatfully appreciated!

It's very weird seeing my family info posted on an open thread like this. I am Mrs. Phelps' eldest granddaughter and spent many years at the ranch, off and on.

My husband is currently in the Barstow/Daggett area reliving his memories of when his parents, he & his sister lived at the Cool Water Ranch & were caretakers, cook/housekeeper & ranch employee for the Phelps. This was around 1954-55 & he is now 81 years old. He remembers such good times spent there, he just wanted to return to see what is left there. When they lived there, they would ride horseback in the hills through & around the ghost town of Calico Rock, which I looked up on the Internet & find it now a tourist attraction. He knows the ranch will have been developed & is hoping he can still drive through there & see what he can remember.
