Cumby is a city in Hopkins County. It was originally named Black Jack Grove as early as 1848 due to its location being near to a grove of blackjack oak trees. The oak grove was used as a camp by Texas Rangers and freight wagoners during the days. Also, the town was granted a post office in 1848. In 1857, the post office was renamed Theodocias but it was named back again as Black Jack Grove a year later. On Christmas Day of 1866, a gun battle over a horse race resulted in the death of five men. When the East Line and Red River Railroad reached Black Jack Grove in 1880, the town gradually began to lose its shape. In 1886, in an attempt to change the town’s reputation, the railroad and the post office suggested that the community be renamed. Congressman David B. Culberson then suggested naming the town after his confederate veteran friend Robert H. Cumby. In 1911, Cumby had two banks, two lumberyards, three gins, a cottonseed oil mill, and a tin shop.
