MESQUITOSO CREEK. Mesquitoso Creek rises one half mile southwest of Mills Bennett in east central Webb County (at 27°40' N, 98°50' W) and runs northwest for twelve miles to its mouth on Black Creek, ten miles northwest of Mills Bennett (at 27°48' N, 98°54' W). Low rolling and flat terrain in the area has locally shallow depressions and is surfaced by clay and sandy loam that supports grass, mesquite, chaparral, and water-tolerant hardwoods.
