SMITH CREEK (DeWitt County). Smith Creek rises four miles southwest of Yorktown in western DeWitt County (at 28°58' N, 97°35' W) and runs southeast for nine miles to its mouth on Fifteenmile Creek, five miles southeast of Yorktown (at 28°56' N, 97°27' W). The surrounding flat and rolling terrain is surfaced by highly permeable soil that supports scrub brush and prairie grasses.
