BELL BRANCH (Fayette County). Bell Branch rises a mile northeast of Warrenton in north central Fayette County (at 30°02' N, 96°44' W) and extends east, passing under State Highway 237, to its mouth on Cummins Creek (at 30°02' N, 96°41' W). The stream traverses low-rolling hills and prairies surfaced by sandy loam over firm clay. The area is vegetated primarily with mesquite and grasses and, though considered fair for agriculture, is used primarily as unimproved pasture.
