MILL CREEK (Guadalupe County). Mill Creek rises four miles east of Geronimo in north central Guadalupe County (at 29°41' N, 97°53' W). It flows southeast for sixteen miles to its mouth on the Guadalupe River, seven miles south of Kingsbury (at 29°33' N, 97°49' W). The surrounding terrain is rolling to flat, with local shallow depression, and surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support mesquite, water tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses. The creek may have received its name from Joseph Clements, who agreed in his deed of sale from Green DeWitt to build grist and saw mills near its mouth in 1830.
