GREENS CREEK (Lee County). Greens Creek rises six miles southeast of Giddings in southern Lee County (at 30°08' N, 96°52' W) and runs southeast for about six miles to its mouth on Rabbs Creek, about two miles southeast of Warda in Fayette County (at 30°05' N, 96°52' W). It traverses terrain with sandy surface layers and mottled yellow with red and gray loamy subsoils that support post oak woods. The creek was probably named for David G. Green, an early land grantee in Fayette and Lee counties.
