This story is documented on a marker about the name Yegua: In 1690, the Spanish gave the name "San Francisco" to this 62-mile Brazos River tributary. On an 1822 map, Stephen F. Austin, marked it "Yegua" which is Spanish for "mare" presumably for the mustang mares and foals that grazed near the timber lined creek.
