GENTRY CREEK. Gentry Creek rises in north central Kimble County a half mile south of the Menard-Kimble county line (at 30°42' N, 99°48' W) and runs southeast for twenty-one miles to its mouth on the Llano River, two miles south of Teacup Mountain and four miles northeast of Junction (at 30°31' N, 99°41' W). The stream is named for Raleigh Gentry, who moved from Bear Creek in 1862 and settled just above Gentry Creek's mouth. At that time the creek flowed year-round and was inhabited by beaver.
