TEBO CREEK. Tebo Creek, also known as Tebo Bayou, rises five miles southeast of San Augustine in eastern San Augustine County (at 31°28' N, 94°04' W). The stream, intermittent in its upper reaches, runs southeast for fifteen miles, through eastern San Augustine County and western Sabine County, to its mouth on Palo Gaucho Bayou, one mile southwest of Milam in western Sabine County (at 31°23' N, 93°52' W). The banks of the stream are heavily wooded in places with pine and hardwood trees, and the nearly level to moderately steep terrain is surfaced by loam, sand, and clay. The area is used predominantly for agriculture and as forest land.
