OAK GROVE, TEXAS (Grayson County). Oak Grove was eight miles north-northwest of Sherman in north central Grayson County. The existence of an Oak Grove school by 1891 suggests that the settlement was established sometime during the late nineteenth century. The only available statistics report a population of twenty-five in the mid-1930s and sixty in the late 1940s, when Oak Grove maintained a school, a church, and two rated businesses. The school became part of the Pottsboro school district in 1951, and Oak Grove ceased to exist as an organized community sometime thereafter.
