    Summary:  Three Abstracts of Title; two are complete histories, one is a portion of an abstract.
     
    1. Eagle Lake Beach and Eagle Lake View, a subdivision of a portion of the George McCloud Survey, Tarrant County. This survey was assigned to George McCloud, July 28, 1850, Bounty Warrant 901 for 320 acres from the State of Texas.

The portion involved here was part of the large Volney Hall Ranch (also listed on 1895 Sam Street map). This was platted for a development bordering the eastern shore of Eagle Mountain Lake in 1930, but is not believed to have been carried out due to the Great Depresion. It ends in 1931.
