GEORGETOWN, TX (GRAYSON COUNTY)

GEORGETOWN, TEXAS (Grayson County). Georgetown was near the Red River four miles north of what is now the site of Pottsboro in north central Grayson County. The community was probably named for George Ivy, who owned the land where Fort Johnsonqv was located in 1840. As other communities developed nearby and Fort Johnson was vacated, the Georgetown residents left, and the community dissolved.
