Grayson County

County History and Geography

In the Oakwoods and Blackland Prairie Regions of north Texas, Grayson County was formed in 1846 from Fannin County. Its county seat, Sherman, is on US-75, about 55 miles north of Dallas. It is bordered by the Texas counties of Fannin, Collin, Denton and Cooke, and on the north by the Red River, Lake Texoma, and the Oklahoma counties of Marshall and Bryan.

Any names below in red have not been matched with a person in the Culpepper family tree. If you can identify any of them, please let us know.
