Neinda

Neinda, on Farm Road 126 seven miles southeast of Hamlin in northwest Jones County, was settled in the 1880s by Joe Cox and others. It was called Banner until the post office was established in 1900. The railroads bypassed Neinda, and the town's first postmaster, John O'Brien, was also its last. In 1940 Neinda had a gin, several businesses, and seventy-five residents. In 1978 a store, a gin, and the Baptist church survived. The population was thirty-one in 1980 and 1990. The old cemetery is maintained by the Cemetery Association and the Pioneers Reunion, which meets annually. In 2000 the population was twenty-one .

Adapted from the official Handbook of Texas, a state encyclopedia developed by the Texas State Historical Association (TSHA). It is an authoritative source of trusted historical records.
