STEWART CREEK (Bowie County). Stewart Creek rises five miles south of New Boston in southern Bowie County (at 33°25' N, 94°28' W) and flows south for two miles to its mouth on Anderson Creek (at 33°23' N, 94°29' W). The soils through which the creek flows are loamy, and the area is heavily wooded, with post oak, blackjack oak, and elm trees predominating. The stream may have been named for John Stewart, original grantee of the land on which it rises.
