MARTINS CREEK (Maverick County). Martins Creek rose east of Farm Road 1021 in southern Maverick County (at 28°13' N, 100°08' W) and ran south four miles to its mouth on the Rio Grande in northwestern Webb County (at 28°10' N, 100°09' W). The surrounding flat to rolling terrain is surfaced by dark clay and sandy and clay loam that support hardwoods, mesquite, grasses, and cacti. By the 1980s the creek no longer appeared on state highway maps.
