KELLISONS CREEK. Kellisons Creek rises three miles south of Pearsons Chapel in southwestern Houston County (at 31°08' N, 95°32' W) and runs southwest for eight miles to its mouth on the Trinity River, near the Fort Trinidad oilfield (at 31°03' N, 95°38' W). The creek, which is intermittent in its upper reaches, traverses flat terrain surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
