PROCELLA, TEXAS. Procella was an early settlement on the Angelina River just off U.S. Highway 59 eight miles southwest of Nacogdoches in southern Nacogdoches County. It grew up at a crossing on the Angelina about the time of the Civil War. At various times Procella has been the site of several stores, a sawmill, and a cotton gin. As late as the mid-1960s the area had two stores, a sawmill, and a cemetery. In the early 1990s only the cemetery and a few scattered houses remained. No population estimates were available.
