KEEGANS BAYOU. Keegans Bayou rises one mile south of Clodine and two miles west of the Harris county line in northeastern Fort Bend County (at 29°41' N, 95°40' W) and runs eleven miles east to its mouth on Bray's Bayou, east of U.S. Highway 59 and south of downtown Houston near Brae Burn Country Club in southwestern Harris County (at 29°40' N, 95°32' W). The Bayou was named for James Kegans, Jr., an early settler of Texas. The creek is intermittent in its upper reaches. The surrounding flat to rolling terrain is surfaced by sandy and clay loam that originally supported mixed hardwoods and pines; the area is now residential metropolitan Houston.
