LIVEOAK CREEK (Bastrop County). Liveoak Creek rises five miles southeast of Rosanky in southeastern Bastrop County (at 29°53' N, 97°15' W) and runs southeast for seventeen miles, passing by Cistern and turning northeast to its mouth on Buckners Creek, a mile north of Muldoon near the Southern Pacific line in southwestern Fayette County (at 29°50' N, 97°04' W). The creek rises in flat to rolling prairie surfaced by dark, commonly calcareous clays that support mesquite, grasses and cacti. Later in its course it runs through an area of sandy and clay loam soils that support scrub brush, cacti, and grasses.
