MCCONNICO, TEXAS. During the first decade of the twentieth century McConnico was a logging camp in central Angelina County two miles south of Huntington. It received its mail from Huntington and was named for lumberman J. B. McConnico. About 1906 McConnico built a small sawmill at nearby Diboll Junction, five miles southeast of Lufkin at the intersection of the Texas South-Eastern Railroad and the Cotton Belt. He was also the tax assessor of Angelina County from 1904 to 1908.
