CATFISH, TEXAS. Catfish was twelve miles southeast of Athens in southeastern Henderson County. A post office operated there from 1888 to 1910. At its height around 1900 the settlement had a flour mill, a gin, and a grocer. By the mid-1930s Catfish no longer appeared on maps, and in the early 1990s only a few houses remained in the area.
