MCGREW BRANCH. McGrew Branch rises two miles southeast of Greenville in central Hunt County (at 33°06' N, 96°05' W) and runs southeast for 6½ miles to its mouth on Cedar Creek, just east of Greenville Club Lake (at 33°01' N, 96°01' W). It crosses flat to rolling land surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support water-tolerant hardwoods and local grasses. The area has mostly been used as range. The stream may have been named for John McGrew, who patented land near its head.
