Wilcox was near the site of present-day George's Creek in the northeast corner of Somervell County. It was named for William Cox, who settled on a nearby bend of the Brazos River in 1855. Settlement began in the mid-1850s. Not long thereafter, however, the residents moved to the George's Creek settlement, which soon after the Civil War provided area farmers with a church, a school, and several businesses.
