Itasca is in Hill Co, TX, and the county seat is Hillsboro. Here is a handy dandy site to locate county for Texas towns/cities:

Here's one for all of the U.S.:

http://resources.rootsweb.com/cgi-bin/townco.cgi

Using the GNIS site, type in "feature" Itasca, click on state drop down box option and choose state of Texas, click on search. First item listed is the populated place of Itasca, click on it. Scroll down and click "show feature location." Then scroll down to county map, click once on zoom out and you will get a better feel of where Itasca is located from such towns as Hillsboro.

Go to Handbook of Texas online, type in Itasca, click on search and first item that appears, click on it. That will give you a brief little history of the town.

You might want to bookmark all of these sites for future use, they really are pretty handy.

Happy Hunting (^_^)
