KUYKENDALLS CREEK. Kuykendalls (Kuykendall) Creek rises seven miles southeast of Gay Hill in Washington County (at 30°16' N, 96°23' W) and runs southeast seven miles to its mouth on Rocky Creek (at 30°14' N, 96°19' W). The local terrain is gently sloping and is surfaced by clay and fine sandy loams that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses. This creek was named for Abner Kuykendall, who received a land grant in the area in 1824.
