LARRISON CREEK (CHEROKEE COUNTY)
LARRISON CREEK (Cherokee County). Larrison Creek rises two miles northeast of Redlawn in south central Cherokee County (at 31°43' N, 95°04' W) and runs southeast for eighteen miles to its mouth on the Neches River, five miles south of Forest (at 31°27' N, 95°03' W). The stream is intermittent in its upper reaches. It crosses flat to gently rolling terrain surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support mixed hardwoods and pines. The creek was once believed to have been the site of the murder of René Robert Cavelier, Sieur de la Salle, but recent research suggests that the murder occurred farther west near the eastern bank of the Trinity River.
