Humble, TX since 1995
the Civil War, a wandering fisherman named P.S. (Pleasant) Humble
brought his family into the area. They settled on the banks of the
San Jacinto River and operated a ferry near the present U.S. 59
crossing. A flood drove his family away from the river in search
of higher ground. Soon a small community began forming in the
oil boom town. Originated as crossroads community named for
settler Pleasant Smith Humble (1835?-1912), who lived here
before 1889, hewing his timber into railroad ties, mining gravel
from his land, keeping store, and serving as justice of the peace.
Neighbors included the Bender, Durdin, Isaacks, Lee, Slaughter,
and Williams families.
