In the mid to late 1880s David A. Adams arrived from Coleman County, Texas, soon to be followed by other family members. The family became the namesake of Texas Canyon, as there were "a bunch of damned Texans up there." Descendants still live and raise cattle on the old family ranch.

The Thing?) I-10 passes through a place named Texas Canyon. There are two problems with that. First, it's not in Texas. Second, it's not a canyon. It's a pass or a gap. The highway climbs up a grade on either side and summits at Texas Canyon. There's a rest stop where, after you pee, you can contemplate how a place that's neither a canyon nor in Texas came to be named Texas Canyon. From Wikipedia:
