Hopkins County was created 25 March 1846 by taking land from the south end of Lamar County and the north end of Nacogdoches County. In 1870 and 1871 portions of the county became Rains County and Delta County and an isolated corner was added to Lamar County.


Note: All entries, unless otherwise noted, were by Combs Researcher and Texas/Georgia Web Editor S.C. Hefner, to whom credit is also due for all annotations. Also Note: Except where otherwise noted, all information came from abstracts by the Hopkins County Genealogical Society, extracted by Combs Researcher S.C. Hefner.


The John GREGG family seems to have lived in the county briefly, but the first permanent Anglo settlement came in December of 1842 when the families of two brothers, Robert and Hezekia HARGRAVE, arrived near present-day Sulphur Bluff. Within fifteen years the following settlements were established: "Veals Store, later Lollars Store near Weaver, Black Jack Grove, now Cumby, settled in 1845, Carroll's Prairie, now Como, Cold Hill, now Bonanza, Twin Groceries, now Saltillo, Bucksnort, now extinct, Cornersville," and Tarrant, the first county seat. The county seat was moved to Sulphur Springs during Reconstruction.

Today Hopkins County is bounded by Delta County on the north (the south fork of the Sulphur River being the dividing line), Franklin County on the east, Wood and Rains Counties on the south, and Hunt County on the west.

Notes: According to Gretta COMBS REICH, Thomas Jackson COMBS and Mary Francis HOUSE COMBS moved from Georgia in the late 1880s. [See Paulding Co, GA] They moved slowly across Alabama during the late 1880s and early 1890s before coming on to Texas. They arrived in Hopkins County in the latter part of 1895. Their three oldest sons, James Henry COMBS, Benjamin Britton COMBS, and Willis Seborn COMBS (see Franklin Co., TX), had come to Hopkins county ahead of the rest of the family to find farms to rent. Thomas Jackson COMBS and Mary Francis HOUSE COMBS, the rest of their children, as well as James Henry COMBS's wife and two children, came on a train from Alabama.

They rented a farm near Cornersville for a year and another farm near Greenwood for a year. On 9 Feb 1898 they bought a farm between Greenwood and Pine Forest. They built a house in 1905 using an existing structure for the kitchen.

Mary Francis HOUSE Combs'parents were Seborn and Elizabeth (Betty) HOUSE. They followed their only child to Texas but became dissatisfied and returned to Georgia. Elizabeth HOUSE died in Georgia around 1900. Seborn HOUSE returned to Texas and died around 1902. He is buried in the cemetery at Greenwood Baptist Church, where Thomas and Mary were members.

Mary Francis HOUSE COMBS died 26 Dec 1906. She is buried at Greenwood. On 20 Jan 1910 Thomas Jackson COMBS married Sarah (Sallie) E. SMITH PENN. Thomas Jackson COMBS died 3 May 1927 and is buried beside Mary at Greenwood. After his death, his son John Chester COMBS bought the farm from the various heirs as he could afford it and as the heirs became willing to sell it.
