RUSSELL CREEK (Tyler County). Russell Creek rises four miles southeast of Chester in northwestern Tyler County (at 30°53' N, 94°33' W). Intermittent in its upper reaches, it follows a northeasterly course for nineteen miles to its mouth on the Neches River, on the Tyler-Angelina county line (at 31°62' N, 94°30' W). Russell Creek cuts through generally flat to rolling terrain surfaced by sandy and clay loams. Hardwood and pine forests are predominant in the area.
