Red River County is separated from Arkansas by Bowie County, and Oklahoma by the Red River. Inhabited by the Indians as early as 1500 B.C., it was an an original county created in 1836 from the old municipality of Mexico.

The bands of Indians who immigrated into this area were the Shawnee, Delaware and Kickapoos who settled along the banks of the creeks that continue to bear their name. As the white settlers moved into the area, the relations between them and the Indians were relatively peaceful.

Clarksville, where the Tisdales and their relations lived, was an important trading center and is situated about sixty miles from Texarkana.
