Roeder

Roeder is on Farm Road 1735 six miles southeast of Mount Pleasant in southeastern Titus County. A post office was established there in 1892 with John F. Merrett as postmaster; it remained in operation until 1904. In 1896 the community was little more than a country store, but by 1936 it had a population estimated at 100. The population had declined to twenty-five by 1954. In 1984 Roeder had a small store and widely scattered houses. It was still listed as a community in 1990.

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.
