I followed you instructions and found.

PEŅA CREEK. Peņa Creek rises twelve miles southwest of Carrizo Springs in west central Dimmit County (at 28°27'N,100°01 'W) and flows northeast for twenty-one miles before emptying into Turkey Creek a mile southwest of Crystal City in southern Zavala County (at 28°40' N, 99°51' W). The creek rises in flat to rolling land and descends to flat terrain with locally shallow depressions in its lowest reaches. Mesquite, grasses, and cacti grow in the upper reaches and water-tolerant hardwoods and grasses in the lower. Upstream the ground is dark clay, and downstream clay and sandy loams predominate.

The deed was filed in Bexar County but there was some more information that mentioned Dimmit County. The family lived in Bexar but the younger boys were out running around with cattle. There was another boy, Henry Clay Adams, killed by the Indians on the Nueces River in Uvalde County. This whole family was in raising stock. "The Old Wild Wild West"
