Duval County, TXGenWeb
Welcome to Duval County!

Duval County is in South Texas, between Corpus Christi and Laredo. The county was founded in 1858 and later organized in 1876. It is named for Burr H. Duval, the commander of the Kentucky Mustangs who came to help in the Texas Revolution and died in the Goliad Massacre. The county seat is San Diego. San Diego and Duval County have quite a colorful history that rivals Lincoln County, New Mexico, in the arena of gunfights and outlaws.
   We are bordered on the north by McMullen and Live Oak counties, on the east by Jim Wells, to the west is Webb and south are Jim Hogg and Brooks counties.
