CROSS CREEK. Cross Creek rises just northwest of the convergence of the Lee, Milam, and Williamson county lines in southeast Williamson County (at 30°27' N, 97°11' W) and runs southeast through Williamson, Milam, and Lee counties for seven miles to its mouth on Middle Yegua Creek, six miles northwest of Lexington in Lee County (at 30°25' N, 97°07' W). The banks of the stream are wooded in places with mesquite trees. It runs through gently sloping terrain surfaced by loamy and clayey soils used predominantly for agricultural purposes.
