    Interesting name nascency of Egypt in Wharton County Texas, the below pic is an enlarged text cut out as taken from the above shown right side state historical marker on the Farm to Market Rd 1161 W (aka: W FM 1161 Rd) in Egypt, Wharton, TX, USA. @ 29°24'13.6"N 96°14'00.6"W.

    Yet another reference of the above Egypt in Wharton County TX naming: - Texas State Historical Association (TSHA)Egypt, TX (Wharton County)

    ‘‘ The town was originally called Mercer's Crossing, but during a severe drought the area supplied corn to surrounding settlements, and people began to refer to it as Egypt. ’’
    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

    And so the Egypt in Wharton County Texas name origin turns out to be from: Genesis 42 : 1 - 3 Link = Bible New International Version NIV - (CEB - KJV - etc. - etc.)

    ‘‘ Genesis 42 : 1 - 3 - - Bible - New International Version - (NIV)
    42 Joseph’s Brothers Go to Egypt
    1 When Jacob learned that there was grain in Egypt, he said to his sons, “Why do you just keep looking at each other?”
    2 He continued, “I have heard that there is grain in Egypt. Go down there and buy some for us, so that we may live and not die.”
    3 Then ten of Joseph’s brothers went down to buy grain from Egypt.
    ’’

    This on the location 29°24'13.6"N 96°14'00.6"W linked aerial view shows the pointer exact between the two State of Texas historical markers, south is up and north is down in this link.

    However in the Google Street View images of june 2008 of the same location looking south, there's now (at this post's date) only the old State of Texas historical marker with the yellow post present at the spot, which means that the 2th and newer State of Texas historical marker with the gray post was placed after the last Google Street View date.

    So about time Google sends their Street View car down the road again to picture the new historical marker about Egypt's history as well, this is the right side one as viewed from the road (aka the west one of the two).

    And also the State of Texas could refresh the paint on the old historical left side marker, as viewed from the road (aka the east one of the two), about the 1830's Cpt. W.J.E. Heard, who's deceased by now I'll take, but anyway, that history plaque of the State of Texas tells that the almost certainly late Captain once founded the plantation on the fertile soil there, and the plaque about these historical facts is now very hard or near impossible to read.

    So Jolly, since your coast is nearby the spot, could you please send these institutions a note about this . . ? :)

    I will try my best but don't hold your breath. There are a few misleading statements on the history plaque such as "After 1835, a Methodist Church, a stage coach line and a railroad were established in Egypt." It was well after 1835 when the railroad came through being built between Eagle Lake and Wharton. 1900 to be exact. Cane Belt RR http://www.eaglelakedepot.org/eld2_009.htm

    They should have included electricity, basic cable and wi-fi to complete the completely true but incomplete statement.

    Emergency Happiness Computer Shop - in the town of Fish Hoek - South Africa. Quite fun. Or a beacon of hope for those addicted to tablets and technology.
