OHIO, TEXAS (Hamilton County). Ohio is a ghost town on Plum Creek in south Hamilton County. It was named after the home state of William T. Baker, who settled there around 1877. Baker operated a gin and a store and in 1882 became postmaster of a post office later operated by his son, James A. Baker. About 1886 the post office was moved to Cowhouse Creek near Carter's Mill. The new village of Ohio remained busy for some decades, but the post office closed in 1920. The population was twenty in 1930 and 1940. The last business folded in 1943.
