ELM CREEK (Wilson County). Elm Creek rises just east of Pandor in eastern Wilson County (at 29°15' N, 97°49' W) and runs east twenty-five miles to its mouth on Sandies Creek, a mile west of Sample Cemetery in southern Gonzales County (at 29°15' N, 97°32' W). It is intermittent in its upper reaches. The stream traverses flat to rolling terrain surfaced by clay and sandy loam that supports water-tolerant hardwoods and grasses.
