DANIELS CREEK. Daniels Creek rises two miles northwest of McMahan in eastern Caldwell County (at 29°53' N, 97°32' W) and runs southwest for seven miles to its mouth on Tenney Creek, three miles west of Tilmon (at 29°48' N, 97°34' W). It traverses an area of rolling prairie surfaced by shallow clay loams that support mesquite, mixed hardwoods, and grasses. The stream may have been named for George Daniels, an early settler in the area.
