MITCHELL CREEK (Gonzales County). Mitchell Creek rises in east central Gonzales County (at 29°33' N, 97°25' W) and flows southeastward for eight miles to its mouth on Peach Creek, a mile southwest of Dilworth (at 29°29' N, 97°19' W). The stream was named for Eli Mitchell, who registered a league of land across which it flows. The terrain is low to moderately rolling; the creek's banks are surfaced with silty clay loams. The area is characterized primarily by mixed hardwoods and pines.
