DENTON CREEK (GONZALES COUNTY)
DENTON CREEK (Gonzales County). Denton Creek rises in southern Gonzales County (at 29°23' N, 97°24' W) and runs southeast to its mouth on the Guadalupe River, a mile southwest of Hochheim in DeWitt County (at 29°17' N, 97°20' W). The stream was probably named for Abraham Denton, one of Green DeWitt's colonists, who acquired a quarter of a league of land in the area. Denton Creek passes through rolling to steep terrain surfaced by fine, sandy loams and clayey soils that support pines and a variety of grasses.
