MCCOY CREEK (DeWitt County). McCoy Creek rises twelve miles north of Cuero in northeastern DeWitt County (at 29°20' N, 97°14' W) and runs southwest for eight miles to its mouth on the Guadalupe River, six miles north of Cuero (at 29°12' N, 97°19' W). The surrounding flat to rolling terrain with local dissection is surfaced by highly permeable soil that supports scrub brush and prairie grasses. The stream was named for John McCoy, who received a headright on the creek in 1827.
