CONNOR CREEK. Connor (Conner) Creek rises a mile south of Sewell oilfield in southeast Young County (at 33°05' N, 98°27' W) and runs southeast four miles to its mouth on Possum Kingdom Lake (at 33°00' N, 98°29' W). It was named for Delaware chief John Connor, who was granted a league of land by the Republic of Texas on which the creek was located. The surrounding rolling hills are surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support scrub brush, mesquite, grasses, live oak, and juniper.
