Fish Branch, on the Houston, East and West Texas Railway, probably near where the line crosses the Fish Branch of Mussel Shoals Creek, was within the R. W. Wilburn tract between Shepherd and Urbana in eastern San Jacinto County. The locale was listed as a stop on a 1918 railroad map of Texas. It was also shown on a late-1920s map of San Jacinto County. Although not labeled on more recent maps, the site was still marked by a few buildings and a church in the mid-1980s.
