NASH CREEK (Guadalupe County). Nash Creek rises in eastern Guadalupe County (at 29°38' N, 97°49' W) a mile southeast of Kingsbury and runs southeast for thirteen miles to its mouth (at 29°31' N, 97°44' W) on the Guadalupe River near the Guadalupe-Gonzales county line. The local terrain ranges from rolling to flat with local shallow depressions; the soil is made up of clay and sandy loams that support mesquite and grasses along the upper reaches of the creek and water tolerant hardwoods and conifers nearer its mouth. The creek was probably named for Ira Nash, who in 1831 received a land grant that included it.
