Dogwood Creek (Washington County)

James L. Hailey General Entry

Dogwood Creek rises nine miles southwest of Brenham in southwestern Washington County (at 30°05' N, 96°32' W) and runs southeast for nine miles to its mouth on the East Fork of Mill Creek, 1½ miles north of Industry in Austin County (at 30°00' N, 96°31' W). It traverses an area of low-rolling hills and prairies, surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support grasses, mesquite, and occasional post oak.

The following, adapted from the Chicago Manual of Style, 15th edition, is the preferred citation for this entry.
