TERRYSVILLE, TEXAS. Terrysville (Terryville) was about two miles west of U.S. Highway 183 and nine miles south of Gonzales in east central Gonzales County. The dispersed rural community of black farmers had a church during the 1920s, though many area residents attended Mount Enon Baptist Church in Dement, about four miles to the south. Terrysville also included a school in the 1920s and 1930s, located a quarter of a mile northwest. In 1987 only the cemetery remained.
