THEUVENINS CREEK. Theuvenins Creek, known locally as Tootl'm Creek, rises four miles north of Woodville in central Tyler County (at 30°50' N, 94°26' W). Intermittent in its upper reaches, Theuvenins Creek follows a southerly course for thirty miles to its mouth on Beech Creek, just inside the Hardin county line (at 30°31' N, 94°15' W). The stream was probably named for a Frenchman, Arnold Thouvenin, who purchased land along the creek during the republic period. Hardwood forests and conifers predominate in the surrounding sandy loam soil.
