Red River County, Texas
Settlement of present Red River County began about 1814 when the
Anglo-Americans began to move into the region then occupied by the
Caddo, Kickapoo, Shawnee and Delaware Indians. Burkham Settlement
was founded in 1814 by James Burkham, Posey Benningfield, and
others. In 1816, Claiborne Wright made a settlement north of Red
River at Pecan Point. Jourdan J. Ward and his three sons crossed the
river from Pecan Point to locate in the Riverview area. Jonesboro,
founded ca. 1817, became the largest of the early settlements.
As created by the Republic of Texas in 1836, the original county,
which extended east and west along the south bank of the Red River
approximately three hundred and fifty miles and from north and south
fifty to one hundred miles, contained all or parts of thirty-nine
present counties. The creation of the other counties between 1836
and 1847, reduced the area of Red River county to its present size.
