DEWBERRY BRANCH. Dewberry Branch, also known as Berry Creek, rises a mile southeast of Eagle Lake in southeastern Colorado County (at 29°35' N, 96°17' W) and runs southeast for over eight miles to its mouth on West Bernard Creek, just southeast of Lissie and sixteen miles north of Wharton in northeastern Wharton County (at 29°32' N, 96°11' W). The creek, intermittent in its upper reaches, traverses flat to rolling terrain with local escarpments, surfaced by deep fine sandy loam that supports hardwood forest, brush, and grasses.
