History on a Pinhead

The town came into being as the Godwin Ranch was subdivided and sold to farmers in the early 1900s. A store was opened in 1907 and the proprietor (B. W. Moore) had to wait for a population. By 1915 there were only ten people living in Stith. The second set of figures available covers the years 1940-1990 when the population was entered as 18 residents. Thanks to its proximity to Abilene Stith has enjoyed a boom in recent years. There were 50 reported residents for the 2000 census.

Stith , Texas Forum

Subject: Stith, Texas
Stith is just northeast of Merkel Texas and my Daddy is buried in the Cemetery there. Before we moved to Noodle, my dad farmed there for many years near the Kelso Farm. I was the baby of the family with five older brothers. We lived near the gas plant in Stith at the time of my birth. I think the old cotton gin is still standing today. I know that my mother still has some family photos of us in the early 1950s when we lived in the flat there and our cotton farm photos. My motherís name is Vera Maxine Stevens Nichols Black and she is 83 years young. - Melissa Nichols Beasley, Wichita Falls, Texas, August 04, 2008
