DEAD NEGRO DRAW. Dead Negro Draw, formerly known as Dead Nigger Creek, rises in southwestern Garza County just east of the Lynn county line (at 33°03' N, 101°33' W) and runs north for three miles to its mouth on the South Fork of the Double Mountain Fork of the Brazos River, twelve miles southwest of Post (at 33°05' N, 101°33' W). It traverses an area with moderately steep slopes and locally high relief, surfaced by highly erodible shallow to moderately deep silt loams that support mesquite and grasses.
