WILSON CREEK (Johnson County). Wilson Creek rises four miles southwest of Godley in west central Johnson County (at 32°24' N, 97°34' W) and runs southwest for 4½ miles to its mouth on the De Cordova Bend of the Brazos River, seven miles northwest of Bono (at 32°22' N, 97°37' W). It crosses variable terrain, surfaced by shallow, stony clay loams that support juniper and oak trees, grasses, chaparral, and cacti.
