SALOMONENO CREEK. Salomoneno (Salomoneño) Creek rises at the conjunction of Mulato and Chargos creeks, ten miles northwest of Escobes in central Zapata County (at 27°09' N, 99°08' W) and runs southwest for ten miles to its mouth on Arroyo Blanco, one mile northwest of Bustamante (at 26°59' N, 99°09' W). The stream was named about 1810 for Solomon Pereda, a Spanish land grantee who lived in the area and once was stuck in quicksand in the creek. The stream crosses flat terrain, with locally shallow depressions, surfaced by expansive clays that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
