I remember Grady Perry's Grand Ole Erath book lists all post offices in
the county, past and in use when Grady was living. One was Galconda- one
was in Pony Creek- Mitchell Creek area below Miller's Hill. another is
listed across the river north of Paluxy town and towards Comanche Peak.
It was listed in U.S. Post office records as in Erath County, but that
changed when Somervell and Hood Counties were organized. Part of this
territory was in Bosque County for a short time before Erath County
before George B. Erath and Col. Buck Barry of Texas Rangers and others
organized the first Erath County . It joined Johnson County at the
Brazos. Today, Bosque and Johnson County still join for several miles.

I'm doing research on the area surrounding and including the
River drainage. I've not been able to find the origin of the word
"Paluxy". Would anyone happen to know?
