STOVALL CREEK. Stovall Creek rises five miles south of Lufkin in southwestern Angelina County (at 31°14' N, 94°44' W) and runs south for ten miles to its mouth on the Dollarhide Cutoff, near the Neches River (at 31°07' N, 94°45' W). The surrounding East Texas timberland has gently rolling to hilly terrain, surfaced by clayey, loamy soils that support hardwood forest. The creek was named for John H. Stovall, an early settler of Angelina County.
