Elmore was established as a post office in extreme northwestern Hall County on May 4, 1891, with Andrew J. Jasper as postmaster.
This office was discontinued on August 31, 1898, and mail sent to Clarendon in Donley County after the community failed to develop.

Zaphod : Yeah, no. There are a couple MAJOR holes there.
Article: So what happened to Elmore, Texas? Metman pored over pictures of both civilian and military aircraft with no success, until he was shown a picture in a book on experimental aircraft. The plane he believes he saw was simply designated the JA37. The only known picture of the JA37shows an opening just below the forward wing which is almost certainly an intake for a jet engine. Metman is also convinced that he heard the airplane crash. The strange plane and the disappearance of Elmore are too much of a coincidence not to be interconnected.
Zaphod: The only known picture? There are hundreds, if not thousands of pictures of the JA-37. There were 329 of them built.
Article: On 27th August 1954 Elmore, Texas, was a sleepy little town a mile off the interstate, whose town sign recorded the population as 327 persons. On 29th August 1954 Elmore, Texas, ceased to exist.
Zaphod: The JA-37 program started in 1952, but that was the design stage. The first prototype didn't fly until 1967, and it entered service in 1971.
