Honey Grove, Tex. Fannin County 1886. Drawn by H. Wellge. Beck & Pauli, litho.

Historic map of Honey Grove, TX, published in 1886. Davy Crockett was said to have camped in a grove in 1836, just west of what is now the town square of Honey Grove, on his way to the Alamo to join the Texas Army in San Antonio. It is known that he sent many letters back to Tennessee, describing the grove with hollow trees filled with honey. The first settler in Honey Grove was Samuel Erwin, who arrived in 1842. Samuel Erwin was a friend of Davy Crockett and Crockett actually performed the wedding ceremony for Erwin and his wife.

This map captures the town as it appeared the same year as one of its most famous citizens was born, Erwin Evans Smith, born in 1886. Famous as "the greatest photographer of the Old West", Smith's work is familiar to all Americans, having helped design the Buffalo nickel and the faces of Mt. Rushmore. Smith lived until 1947 and is buried at the Oakwood Cemetery in Honey Grove, where a historical marker marks his grave.
