HUNTLEY, TX

HUNTLEY, TEXAS. Huntley (Huntly) was on the Sabine River at the site that is now Orange, thirty miles east of Beaumont in Orange County. In May 1840 Thomas S. McFarland noted that a town named for Memucan Hunt, a member of the joint United States-Texas boundary commission, was being laid out at the site. The commission's report and maps also mention Huntley, but subsequent accounts refer to the area as Green's Bluff, Madison, or Orange.
