Please, allow a resident of "Red Neckia" answer that....
A branch is an un-named tribuatary of a stream, creek, or river. A full name would be, to quote a local one; "the south branch of lindsey's creek". So, it would be water from a small, no-name branch flowing to (or from) a larger body of water.
