STEELE CREEK (LIMESTONE COUNTY)
STEELE CREEK (Limestone County). Steele Creek rises six miles northwest of Thornton in southeastern Limestone County (at 31°28' N, 96°40'W) and flows southeast for thirty-three miles to its mouth on the Navasota River, nine miles northeast of Easterly in Robertson County (at 31°12' N, 96°19' W). The terrain through which the creek passes is generally flat with local shallow depressions surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support water-tolerant hardwood, conifers, and grasses. The creek was named for local settler Alfonso Steele, a veteran of the battle of San Jacinto.
