LIVEOAK BRANCH. Liveoak Branch rises south of Farm Road 532 near the Gonzales-Lavaca county line in extreme east central Gonzales County (at 29°30' N, 97°14' W) and runs west five miles to its mouth on Peach Creek, two miles south of Little New York (at 29°31' N, 97°18' W). The creek rises in rolling terrain surfaced by clayey and sandy loam soils that support hardwoods, pines, and grasses. Towards its mouth the stream traverses flat terrain with local shallow depressions, surfaced by clay and sandy loam that supports water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
