There is a Bevil Oaks settlement on Hwy 105 about 6 miles west of Beaumont nestled against the banks of Pine Island Bayou. Because of its location on the Bayou it could well date back into history as Pine Island ties into the Neches River and thus has access to Beaumont and the Gulf.

I have been to the location of my family's land grant and it was a few miles north east of Jasper. A distant relative still owned a portion of it but the old original log house was gone. Nothing but a few old grave stones. My great great grandparents were buried there in about 1878. Interesting to see, glad I took pictures.
