CONNER CREEK. Conner Creek rises one mile south of Mount Vernon in eastern Houston County (at 31°24' N, 95°05' W) and runs northeast for six miles to its mouth on the Neches River, on the Angelina county line (at 31°25' N, 95°01' W). It was probably named for W. M. Conner, the original grantee of land near its head. The surrounding flat terrain is surfaced by clay and sandy loam that supports water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
