DEVILS BAYOU. Devils Bayou rises three miles west of Wells in southern Cherokee County (at 31°31' N, 94°58' W) and runs southwest for eight miles to its mouth on the Neches River, two miles west of Emmanuel in northeastern Angelina County (at 31°25' N, 94°59' W). The stream is intermittent in its upper reaches. It runs through flat to gently rolling country surfaced by clay and sandy loam that supports grasses and forests of mixed hardwoods and pines.
