Three years ago I planted two different types of fig trees in the same area. (within two feet of each other) One plant was from my brothers trees in Mississippi, type unknown. The other came from Wal Mart and was a dark Texas type. The one from my brother has produced figs for the last two years while the second has yet to produce any figs. My guess is that I need a second plant of the same kind to get figs on the second plant. Thanks for the info.

Most fig trees need to be 2-4 years old before they can produce fruit. I would say that your Texas variety needs a few more years before it is mature enough. The one from your brother's home may have been older when you got it or it may have come from a cutting from more mature wood or it is simply a variety that has less time to full maturation.
For the one that it not producing, I would give it another year or so. Just in case, I would give it a bit of bone meal. Figs are very susceptible to too much nitrogen, which can produce lots of foliage and little fruit. Bone meal will provide phosphorus, which helps boost fruit production.
