CHISHOLM CREEK. Chisholm Creek rises six miles southwest of Cuero in central DeWitt County (at 29°02' N, 97°22' W) and runs east for three miles to its mouth on the Guadalupe River, two miles southwest of Cuero (at 29°03' N, 97°19' W). The surrounding nearly level to gently sloping terrain is surfaced by clay and mud that supports water-tolerant hardwood, conifers, and grasses. The stream was named for Richard H. Chisholm, who with his family settled on the stream in 1829. His land grant is dated 1831.
