MOORES', TEXAS. Moores', also known as Mooresville, was two miles northeast of Redwater off present U.S. Highway 67 in eastern Bowie County. It was named for Col. Charles Moores, on whose property the post office was located in 1841. Methodist circuit minister John W. P. McKenzie organized an early church there in 1842. The post office was discontinued in 1866. Later maps show no evidence of the community.
