RUSTLER, TEXAS. Rustler was on a mail route from Desdemona in southeastern Eastland County. The community sprang up in the late 1890s as a supply point for ranchers in the Leon River area. A post office operated there between 1905 and 1908; Edward B. Williams was postmaster. By 1945 the community had been abandoned.
