ALEXANDER CREEK. Alexander Creek, in central Hamilton County, rises three miles south of Hamilton (at 33°40' N, 98°05' W) and runs east for eight miles to its mouth on the Leon River (at 31°42' N, 97°59' W). The steep slopes and benches of the area are surfaced by shallow clay loams that support juniper, live oak, mesquite, and grasses.
