THOMAS CREEK (Karnes County). Thomas Creek rises in northern Karnes County just above the DeWitt county line (at 29°04' N, 97°40' W) and runs southeast, through western DeWitt County, for ten miles to its mouth on Boggy Branch, two miles northeast of Nordheim (at 28°58' N, 97°35' W). It crosses flat to rolling terrain surfaced by highly permeable soil that supports mixed hardwoods and pines, interspersed with scrub brush and prairie grasses.
