HATLEY CREEK. Hatley Creek rises three miles east of Hallsville in southwestern Harrison County (at 32°29' N, 94°32' W) and runs southeast for 8½ miles to its mouth on the Sabine River, three miles west of Darco (at 32°24' N, 94°30' W). The local undulating terrain is surfaced by loams and clays that support pine and hardwood trees. The land in the area is used predominantly for agriculture. The creek was named for Tapley Bynum Hatley, who moved from Tennessee to Harrison County in 1839.
