Loving County was established in 1887 from Tom Green County. Loving County is located on the state line with New Mexico in the southwestern corner of the state. It is surrounded by Winkler, Ward, and Reeves Counties. The county seat is Mantone.


1893 (from the on-line New Handbook of Texas, extracted by S. C. Hefner)

"On September 6, 1893, the county commissioners reportedly appointed County Judge J. J. COMBS as agent of the county to locate and acquire patents for county public school lands. COMBS chose four leagues in Dawson and Gaines counties, and the county received the patents on February 9, 1894. The commissioners' court authorized COMBS to sell the four leagues on February 19, 1894, and he sold them two days later."

Note: Dawson and Gaines Counties are northeast of Loving County.
