EDNAS CREEK. Ednas Creek rises a mile west of Bomarton in western Baylor County (at 33°30' N, 99°27' W) and runs six miles northeast to its mouth on the Brazos River, nine miles west of Seymour (at 33°34' N, 99°25' W). It traverses flat to rolling terrain with local escarpments, surfaced by deep, fine sandy loam that supports hardwoods, conifers, brush, and grasses. The creek was probably named for Mrs. Edna Duckworth, postmistress at Round Timber in 1910.
