DILL CREEK. Dill Creek rises just east of Looneyville in northwestern Nacogdoches County (at 31°46' N, 94°50' W) and runs northeast for seven miles to its mouth on the East Fork of the Angelina River, just east of Farm Road 225 in southern Rusk County (at 31°51' N, 94°49' W). It traverses flat terrain with local shallow depressions, surfaced by clay and sandy loam that supports water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses. The creek may have been named for James Dill, an early settler.
