ONION CREEK (McCulloch County). Onion Creek rises in central McCulloch County (at 31°15' N, 99°18' W) five miles west of Rochelle and runs southeast for seventeen miles to its mouth (at 31°06' N, 99°11' W) on Brady Creek, seven miles north of Voca. The terrain ranges from rolling hills in the upper reaches of the creek to flat land with local shallow depressions near its mouth; the local clay and sandy loam soils support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses. Onion Creek was the site of an Indian fight in 1866.
