EVERETT CREEK. Everett Creek rises 11½ miles southeast of Jasper in east central Jasper County (at 30°53' N, 93°57' W) and runs south for fourteen miles to its mouth on Thickety Creek, five miles north of Kirbyville (at 30°44' N, 93°52' W). Everett Creek was probably named for Stephen H. Everitt, an early Jasper County settler through whose land claim the stream travels. The creek cuts through the gently undulating terrain typical of central Jasper County, where deep loamy soils support a variety of pines and hardwoods.
