Willow Creek (Bosque County)


Willow Creek rises 3½ miles southeast of Womack in southeastern Bosque County (at 31°48' N, 97°27' W). Intermittent for much of its length, the stream follows a southeasterly course for eight miles to its mouth on Childress Creek, a short distance north of the McLennan county line (at 31°44' N, 97°22' W).

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