Terry County, created in 1876, but not organized until 1904. 

The county is named for Benjamin Franklin Terry, a colonel in the Confederate Army

The county line just west of Lynn County, and the railroads which have penetrated Lubbock and Lynn counties have been an important factor in directing settlement toward Terry County. During the last ten years considerable progress has been made in the improvement of land for farming purposes, and the breaking up of the large pastures has already begun. The county seat is Brownsfield, near the center of the county, and there are several other small villages, including Gomez.  The population of the county in 1890 was 21, and 48 in 1900. By 1910 the county had 1,474 inhabitants.
