In Reply to: Willow hole or Willowhole by Larry Robertson of 335

I family from that area. My understanding is that Willowhole (one word) was a smaller community very near the slighly larger community of Zulch. Often people mistakenly refer to Zulch as Zulach, Zuluch and Gulch but 'Zulch' is the correct spelling. At some point in the late 1800's or early 1900's a railroad was built about two miles north of Zulch and the town of North Zulch was formed along the railroad. The original Zulch eventually faded away. North Zulch still exists. All three communities were in the northern part of Madison Co., Texas in 1892 but very, very close the border of Grimes Co., Texas. You may find some records of people from that area mixed in with Grimes Co. information.
