COW CREEK (FORT BEND COUNTY)
COW CREEK (Fort Bend County). Cow Creek rises a mile north of Damon and eighteen miles west of Angleton (Brazoria County) in southern Fort Bend County (at 29°19' N, 95°44' W) and runs east twelve miles, largely along the Fort Bend-Brazoria county line, to its mouth on the Brazos River, at the northwest corner of the Ramsey state prison farm in Brazoria County (at 29°20' N, 95°36' W). Cow Creek is channeled in its upper reaches, and its tributaries include Bee and Turkey creeks. It traverses flat to rolling terrain surfaced by sandy and clay loams that support mixed hardwoods, conifers, grasses, and palmetto.
