Area History: The history of Fannin Co and the surrounding Bonham and Windom townships is a long and complicated history. Before European settlement, the area was dominated by Caddo Indian culture. These tribes were known to be some of the first sedentary cultures of the Native Americans. Irrigation, farming, and the construction of homes meant these tribes thrived where they lived, utilizing the springs, creeks, and rivers still found in this productive area of Texas. The area is drained by the Red River and Bois D’Arc Creek; Fannin Co is watered by springs throughout and the average 43 inches of annual rain. The natural flora consists of oak, hickory, ash, walnut, pecan, cottonwood, elm, cedar, and Bois D’Arc trees, as well as redbud, spicewood, dogwood, pawpaw, and dwarf buckeye.

The county was originally to be named ‘Independence’, but during debates over the bill, the name was changed to Fannin, in honor of James Walker Fannin, Jr., a martyred hero of the Texas Revolution. The first county seat was named ‘Bois D’Arc’ in 1843, after the local tree that shaped the Native American’s lifestyle here.

In 1844 Bois D’Arc was renamed Bonham in honor of James Butler Bonham, a defender of the Alamo. Bonham has continued to be the major center of commerce for Fannin County and remains the county seat today.

Appearing on topographic maps and Google Earth still today, Burnett, TX was located on the O’Shields Family property. Named after local author and journalist, Thomas R Burnett, whose family arrived in early-1850 from Tennessee. Journalism became a passion in the young Burnett, and soon thereafter every major publication from Bonham, Paris, Ladonia, and Denton, TX were founded with help from Burnett. In September of 1876, Burnett set out across North Texas, reporting, writing, and advancing the interests of publications throughout the area. In 1888, Burnett moved to Dallas and merged his paper with the local publication. Burnett is buried in Oak Cliff Cemetery in Dallas, but his presence and influence can still be seen in the newspapers, publications, and organizations that he helped found throughout North Texas.

Terrain & Wildlife Habitat: The property has rolling terrain throughout, with the home situated on a high point on the property, overlooking several of the pastures, the 1+/- acre pond, and a northern horizon. Burnett Creek (named after Thomas R. Burnett) fronts along the property’s eastern boundary, and an unnamed drainage on the western boundary both provide travel corridors for wildlife. The owner reports an increase in the deer population recently, with other game seen being hogs, coyotes, bobcats, and ducks using the ponds during the winter. Large pecan trees are scattered throughout the pastures, as red oaks, hickory, cedar, and elm trees contribute to most of the timber found here.
