QUIGLEY, TEXAS. Quigley was on the Orange and Northwestern Railway in southern Jasper County. C. E. Slade established a logging camp there shortly after reaching an agreement with the Miller-Link Company to log his land in Jasper and Newton counties in 1905. With a tram railroad easing access to the heavily wooded area, the camp shipped up to twenty-four cars of logs per day and had a population of 150. The Slade camp was abandoned in 1909, but the Allison-Barclay Lumber Company of Call built a new sawmill at Quigley in 1924. Although the mill had a daily capacity of 10,000 board feet, it was removed three years later. Quigley is no longer shown on county highway or United States Geological Survey maps.
