1909 Upshur County Court House
Gilmer, Texas

The first settler within the limits of modern Upshur County was probably Isaac Moody, who settled on the Cherokee Trace near West Mountain in 1836. The area that is now Upshur County was originally part of Nacogdoches County and later was  incorporated into Harrison County.  On April 27, 1846, after Texas was admitted to the Union, the first  legislature of the state of Texas established Upshur County; at that time the county included the area of  present Camp County and part of modern Gregg County. On May 1, 1848, the county's voters chose the location for Gilmer, the county seat, and in August the sale of blocks and lots in the new town began. (More)




 

 

We would like to dedicate these awards to the wonderful patrons of Upshur County. They are truely the ones that made this possible by sending in such a vast amount of information. Their names are too numerous to list, but they have worked hard reading cemeteries, taking pictures, digging through personal files, transcribing data, sending old photographs, doing lookups, typing, etc. We appreciate all their hard work and input, and we look forward to being able to continue working with each and every one. Congratulations Upshur County Patrons and lets continue to make the Upshur County TXGenWeb site grow!







We are Elaine Martin & Etta Withers, the Upshur County TXGenWeb county coordinators.  If you would like to submit any information, or volunteer for any projects, please feel free to contact us.  Our motto is that there is no information that is too large or too small to be of benefit to our fellow researchers.  We never know what little tidbit is going to break down a brick wall for someone.

A special thank you goes to Sharon Pierce for her 6 years as Co-CC of Upshur County. She has passed on, and will be greatly missed. Sharon gave countless hours gathering information, typing, walking/transcribing cemeteries, taking photographs, answering queries, and doing anything she could to help make the Upshur County TXGenWeb site as informative and helpful to the researchers as is possible.
