RICKAWAY BRANCH. Rickaway Branch rises 1½ miles northeast of Hallettsville in north central Lavaca County (at 29°29' N, 96°55' W) and runs through the Hallettsville oilfield and the eastern edge of Hallettsville for 5½ miles to its mouth on the Lavaca River, one-half mile south of Hallettsville (at 29°25' N, 96°56' W). The stream has been modified for livestock watering and to suit the oilfield, residential, and industrial areas through which it passes.
