Tips on using this index:

1.     Scroll or use your browser "find" function to search this Index for a particular feature name or location.

2.     Copy the Latitude and Longitude of your selected feature on a piece of paper for later reference. ( 311613N is 31° 16’ 13”  and 0953747W is 95° 37’ 47” – drop the leading 0  )

3.     Click on the name of the feature to view a map of the county. (Features submitted by other than USGS will appear immediately and no more action on you part to locate your feature.)

4.     Note that as you move the cursor across the map that the latitude and longitude of the cursor is given in boxes on the left side of the page.

5.     Move the cursor to display the latitude and longitude you recorded in step 2, and then left click. This click will center your selected feature in the center of the map. This is the location of your selected feature. If the copied lat & long is given in decimal degrees (31.78923) select DD.DD in the coordinates box directly under the Lat & long boxes.

6.     Note that you can Zoom In or out by clicking on the Zoom  + or at the bottom of the map, and that clicking on the red corner markers move the entire map.

7.     Items submitted by sources other than the USGS show approximate locations only. They have not been surveyed but usually are given to editor as verbal or written descriptions.

  1. Locations of creeks & streams are given at the mouth of the creek or stream, i.e. where it joins a larger stream.

Hudd (Hud)

TX

pop place

Located twenty miles northeast of Snyder, Texas, in the canyonland between Little Rough Creek and Goldstens Branch near the Double Mountain Fork of the Brazos River in the northeastern corner of Scurry County. It developed as a farming and ranching community perhaps as early as the 1890s. By 1901 a post office was created and James B. Hudnall, for whom the community was named, served as the first postmaster. J. D. [Buddy] Hudnall (born 1916) told an interviewer that his mother operated a store at their home beginning about 1908 and that a post office called Hud was in the store. Hudnall remembered that their neighbors came to the store to collect mail and that later the store had a gas station. Children from Hud community in the years Hudnall was a student [1923-1930] attended Cottonwood School, about three miles away and located south of Little Rough Creek. From the taking of the 1920 federal census through 1929 Hud community claimed a population of fifteen. In the 1930s Scurry County, like most of the nation, was hit by economic depression. The Hudnall store closed in 1931 and the post office closed by 1934, leaving the community without a focus. The name of the community continued to be shown on state highway maps as late as 1986. Sources: State Department of Highways and Public Transportation, General Highway Map of Scurry County, revised 1 Sep 1986, labeled the community as “Hudd;” SDHPT, General Highway Map of Kent County, revised 1 Sep 1985; Henry Gannett, A Gazetteer of Texas, USGS Bulletin 224 (Washington: Government Printing Office, 1904), 87, called it Hud; Luther Bryan Clegg, ed., The Empty Schoolhouse: Memories of One-Room Texas Schools (College Station: Texas A&M Univ. Press, 1997), 89-90, 123-124, 216, give reminiscences of Buddy Hudnall; Ed Bartholomew, 800 Texas Ghost Towns (Ft. Davis: Frontier Book Publishers, 1971), 52; Charles G. Davis, “Hudd, Texas,” in The New Handbook of Texas, Vol. 3 (Austin: TSHA, 1996), 760; Charles Deaton , Texas Postal History Handbook (Houston: by author, 1980), 107, listed the community as Hud; 1925 Texas Almanac, 61; 1926 Texas Almanac, 81; 1927 Texas Almanac, 76; 1929 Texas Almanac, 57; 1931 Texas Almanac, 144; all almanacs called the community by its post office name, Hud.
