SMALL GREENS CREEK. Small Greens Creek rises four miles southeast of Giddings in southwestern Lee County (at 30°08' N, 96°52' W) and runs south for five miles to its mouth on Greens Creek (at 30°04' N, 96°52' W). Much of its course is cut through rolling terrain surfaced by deep soils of loose gravel and sand over a subsoil of gravel mixed with heavy clay that support some pecan trees, willow trees, and grasses. The soil is a good source of material for road fill but provides poor land for farming or for grazing cattle. Apparently the creek's name is derived from Greens Creek, which took its name from David G. Green, an original grantee in the area.
