KELLER CREEK. Keller Creek rises a mile southeast of La Ward in Jackson County (at 28°48' N, 96°29' W) and runs southeast for seven miles to its mouth on Keller Bay (at 28°40' N, 96°28' W). Both the stream and bay were probably named for Francis Keller, whose land grant bordered the east bank of the creek. The local terrain of coastal prairie uplands is surfaced by dark gray clay loams that support mixed varieties of hardwoods and pines.
