Conroe history:

Here is a history page for the City of Conroe. The following excerpt about how Conroe was named is from the above page. Much more information is available on the history page.

"In 1881, Houston lumberman Isaac Conroe established a sawmill on Stewart's Creek two miles east of the International Great Northern Railroad's Houston-Crockett line on a tract of land in the J. Smith survey, first settled in the late 1830's. A small tram line connected the mill to the track, but Conroe soon transferred his operations down the tracks to the rail junction, where his new mill became a station on the I-GN. In January 1884, a post office was established at the mill commissary, and, at the suggestion of railroad official H.M. Hoxey, the community took the name Conroe's Switch, in honor of the Northern-born, former Union cavalry officer who founded it and served as its first postmaster; within a decade the name was shortened to Conroe."
