Handbook of Texas Online: KAUFMAN COUNTY (1907 words)
Kaufman County was settled predominantly by natives of the southern United States, particularly Tennessee, Arkansas, and Missouri.
In terms of actual combat, the war did not come to Kaufman County, although it was felt, as slave patrols were established in each precinct and the tax dollars of the citizens went to purchase supplies for county companies in the war and to arm the county.
Developments in Kaufman County during the 1970s suggested that the downward trends of the years since 1930 were being reversed and that the upward trends of the 1960s were continuing.
