Welcome to King County Texas Genealogy Trails!

Volunteers dedicated to putting free data online

Our goal is to help you track your ancestors through time by transcribing genealogical and historical data and placing it online for the free use of all researchers

This King County Website
is available for adoption.


If you have a love for history, a desire to help others, and basic web-authoring skills, consider joining us!
Get the details on our Volunteer Page.  If hosting isn't for you, we can use your help in other ways.
[A desire to transcribe data and knowledge of how to make a basic webpage is required.]

We regret that we are unable to
perform personal research for anybody.


King County


Created from Fannin County in 1876 and organized in 1891. Named for William King. Area of 928 square miles. Situated in Northwest Texas. The greater part of the surface is rolling prairie and the soil a rich sandy loam. The county has several streams. Surface water is impregnated with gypsum, but good water can be had at a depth of about 60 feet. Most of the county is given over to stock raising, but within recent years, farming has become one of the occupations. Guthrie, the county seat, is reached by stage line from Benjamin.
