MCTENNEL CREEK. McTennel Creek, formerly called Mustang Creek, rises just above the DeWitt county line in northern Karnes County (at 29°04' N, 97°41' W), runs through a corner of DeWitt County, and reenters Karnes County. It continues southwest for eleven miles to its mouth on Ecleto Creek, four miles southeast of Helena (at 28°57' N, 97°47' W). The surrounding flat to rolling terrain is surfaced by sandy and clay loam that supports scrub brush and grasses.
