CURRY'S CREEK SETTLEMENT. Curry's (Currie's) Creek Settlement, three miles west of the site of present Kendalia in east Kendall County, was named for an early settler. It consisted of a number of homesteads along a five-mile stretch of Curry Creek. The settlement was founded about 1847 when Samuel B. Patton established a homestead on the site. Patton later became the first county junde of Blanco County. Early settlers included Judge William Jones, who established a sawmill on Curry Creek in 1850. John S. Hodges build a saw and grist mill. Parson Daniel Rawls, one of the Old Three Hundred, built the first cotton gin in the county in 1853. Another early settler by the name of Robinson built a gristmill that also served as the location for a Masonic lodge chartered in 1858. The charter was moved to Blanco a year later. By the late 1850s Curry's Creek settlement comprised more than 100 residents, supported by a farming and ranching economy, George Wilkins Kendall introduced sheep ranching in the area in the 1850s. A local post office opened in 1863 but was closed in 1900; postal records had been transferred to nearby Kendalia in 1895. The population of Curry's Creek Settlement began to decline in 1880. Kendalia held a centennial celebration for the founding og the settlement in 1974. by the 1980s a few graves and remnants of homesteads were the only remaning signs of Curry's Creek Settlement

HISTORY:The official dedication of Samuel Boyd Patton's grave as a state historical marker took place on Sunday, 22 Sept. 1996 near the early settlers grave in Kendalia, about 2.8 miles west of the town on FM 3351.
Patton, born in South Carolina in 1787, was a captain in a Tennessee unit that fought in the War of 1812 before moving to Alabama where he served as a court clerk, judge and state legislator.
After his son James Madison Patton came to Texas to fight in the war for independence from Mexico, Samuel Patton moved to Bastrop County in 1837. He was appointed president of the land commissioners by Sam Houston and then served in the Texas Congress.
He later settled in Red River County before moving to Curry Creek in Comal County in 1855. It was there that Patton helped form Blanco County and served as the new county's chief justice, today's equivalent of county judge. In 1862 his homestead became part of the Kendall County and Patton served as the county's chief justice from then until his death in 1869.
Patton's grave lies under an oak tree near Curry Creek on the Roland Lux family ranch, where he settled after coming to Texas in 1837 and spending a brief period near Bastrop.
Patton was married twice and had 17 children. The history of Samuel Boyd Patton was traced by his great-great-great grandson James M. White and his wife, Annetta of Austin, who refurbished Patton's grave by adding a headstone and fence.

TX Kendall vanished community 294712N
0984253W The highway sign says Curry Creek, the map says Curry's Creek and many oldtimers say that its Currie's Creek. Nothing is known of the man it was named after and there is a legend that he drowned in the creek bearing his name. The community, 3 miles South of Kendalia, was settled in 1850 when Judge William E. Jones established a sawmill along the creek. While Boerne was still a small hamlet, Curry's Creek was florishing with a population of 100 or more. Men who helped to shape Texas history lived here. Judge Samuel B. Patton moved here in 1847 when the area was still in Blanco County. He became its first County Judge in 1858. He is buried on his old property and his grave site is a Recorded Texas Historical landmark. The Lawhon brothers, Jesse and John, came with Judge Jones, who himself had a colorful career in San Antonio. Jesse was overseer for the Judge and was killed by Indians in 1855. John settled here, became a rancher and farmer and his descendants are still in the area. Jesse L. McCrocklin was in the Battle of San Jacinto and the Somervell Expedition and was given a large land grant for his military service. Parson Daniel Rawls of Austin's "Old 300" brought 50 slaves here and settled on the creek that bears his name. He built the first cotton gin in the county and organized the Methodist Church in Blanco County. Captain John Sansom, a famous Texas Ranger lived here. George Wilkins Kendall, whom Kendall County is named after, lived here at one time. Still standing is the house with a slot in the door for letters, which was the Curry Creek Post Office, on land now owned by the Herrin family. USGS &
