FITZGERALD CREEK. Fitzgerald Creek rises fourteen miles northwest of Menard in northwestern Menard County (at 31°03' N, 99°56' W) and runs northeast for twelve miles to its mouth on Brady Creek, two miles south of Eden in Concho County (at 31°11' N, 99°51' W). The stream crosses flat to rolling terrain where the soil, in some places shallow and stony and in others composed of clay loams, supports grasses, oaks, junipers, and mesquite.
