Bailey County, Tx.
named for Peter James Bailey
Bailey is named for Peter James Bailey, a defender of the Alamo. Its county seat is Muleshoe.
The county was marked off from Bexar County in 1876. Bailey and twenty-one other counties newly formed at the time were attached to Jack County for judicial purposes. In 1881 jurisdiction of Bailey County was transferred from Jack to Baylor County. Settlement of Bailey County did not come early, since the XIT Ranch held most of its land from 1882 until the division and sale of the ranch in 1901.
