MEXICAN CREEK (Baylor County). Mexican Creek rises a mile southwest of Bomarton in southern Baylor County (at 33°30' N, 99°27' W) and runs southeast for ten miles to its mouth on Millers Creek, a half mile east of Millers Creek Reservoir (at 33°26' N, 99°22' W). Mexican Creek was probably named for the Mexicans who lived on Millers Creek and looked after the Millett brothers' horse ranch. The stream traverses flat to gently sloping terrain surfaced by shallow to moderately deep clay and silt loams that support mesquite and grasses.
