DUNN CREEK (Robertson County). Dunn Creek rises eight miles southwest of Wheelock in southwestern Robertson County (at 30°52' N, 96°27' W) and runs southwest for six miles to its mouth on Spring Creek, two miles east of Sutton (at 30°49' N, 96°30' W). It traverses nearly level terrain surfaced by sandy loams that support post oaks and grasses. The creek was named for the Dunn family, early settlers of the area.
