Please don't think I am lecturing you but anyone doing any research on the State of Texas needs to spend $12.95 and get a copy of the Texas Almanac. It has been published by the Dallas Morning News since 1857 and if it is about Texas it is in that book, including a map and short resume of all 254 counties. It is available in most all bookstores in Texas and any bookstore anywhere should be able to get you a copy. Now to answer your question: There is a town of Brushy Creek in Anderson County, about 10 to 12 due north of Palestine on State Hwy 315. It no longer has a postoffice and any letter that has that postmark on it is probably valuable to a collector.
