DENTON CREEK (Gonzales County). Denton Creek rises two miles northeast of Gonzales in Gonzales County (at 29°38' N, 97°24' W) and runs southeast for ten miles to its mouth on Peach Creek (at 29°31' N, 97°19' W). The stream was also named for Abraham Denton, early DeWitt's colony settler. The local flat to rolling blackland prairie supports mixed hardwoods and pines.
