DONAHOE CREEK (Waller County). Donahoe (Donaho) Creek rises two miles northeast of Howth in northern Waller County (at 30°11' N, 96°02' W) and runs northwest for 3½ miles and then southwest for 5½ miles to its mouth on the Brazos River, seven miles northwest of Howth (at 30°11' N, 96°09' W). It traverses an area of low-rolling hills and prairies surfaced by dark clay and sandy loam soils that support grasses and some mesquite and are suitable for agriculture. The creek was probably named for Mortimor Donaho, who received a land grant in the vicinity.
