Thomas Creek (Karnes County)

General Entry

Thomas Creek rises in northern Karnes County just above the DeWitt county line (at 29°04' N, 97°40' W) and runs southeast, through western DeWitt County, for ten miles to its mouth on Boggy Branch, two miles northeast of Nordheim (at 28°58' N, 97°35' W). It crosses flat to rolling terrain surfaced by highly permeable soil that supports mixed hardwoods and pines, interspersed with scrub brush and prairie grasses.

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