GIBBONS CREEK (Nacogdoches County). Gibbons Creek rises two miles east of Lilbert in western Nacogdoches County (at 31°45' N, 94°52' W) and runs southwest for 7½ miles to its mouth on the Angelina River, a mile north of State Highway 21 (at 31°40' N, 94°56' W). It traverses flat terrain with local shallow depressions, surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses along its banks.
