Biographical or Historical Information

Angelina County is in the timber region of East Texas. It lies between the Angelina and Neches rivers, which form two of the boundaries for the county. The county was a part of the municipality of Nacogdoches under Mexican regime and was included in Haden Edwards' colonial grant, but he did not locate any families in this section. The Hasinai, Caddo, and Bidai tribes are all indigenous to the area. The Shawnee, Cherokee and Biloxi later relocated to Angelina County. The first Anglo settlers came in 1834-1835. Angelina County wasn't created from Nacogdoches County until 1846, shortly after Texas became a state. The county seat has moved several times starting in Marion then moving to Jonesville in 1854, then to Homer in 1858, and finally settling in Lufkin in 1892.
