Cason Town was ten miles southwest of Emory in extreme southwestern Rains County. It was probably first settled after the Civil War and was named for a early resident. In the mid-1930s the settlement had a school and a number of scattered houses. With the construction of Lake Tawakoni in the late 1950s and early 1960s the entire area was inundated.
