SCHNEEMAN DRAW. Schneeman Draw, a valley with an intermittent stream, rises three miles northeast of Lone Mountain in north central Crockett County (at 31°05' N, 101°39' W) and runs southeast twenty-four miles to its mouth on Howard Draw, one mile south of State Route 29 (at 30°53' N, 101°28' W). Its course sharply dissects massive limestone on flat terrain and crosses wash deposits of sand, gravel, and mud on steep to gentle slopes. Generally dark, calcareous stony clays and clay loams support oaks, junipers, grasses, mesquites, and scrub brush. The draw was named for the William Schneeman family who established a large ranch near its banks at the end of the nineteenth century.
