BERRY CREEK (Frio County). Berry Creek rises a mile south of Farm Road 57 and sixteen miles west of Pearsall in central Frio County (at 28°56' N, 99°22' W) and runs southeast for twelve miles before joining Cattail Creek (at 28°49' N, 99°17' W) a mile above the latter stream's confluence with the Leona River in west central Frio County. The stream is named for Tillman Berry, an early settler of the area. Area vegetation includes various grasses and a scattering of pecan and willow trees. The creek crosses flat to rolling terrain with steep margins, surfaced by sand and gravel.
