PLUM CREEK (MOORE COUNTY)
PLUM CREEK (Moore County). Plum Creek rises at the confluence (at 35°39' N, 101°48' W) of its north and south branches in south central Moore County, and runs southeast for twelve miles to join the Canadian River in northeastern Potter County (at 35°35' N, 101°43' W). Initially the creek traverses rolling terrain surfaced by deep, fine, sandy loams that support brush and grasses; along the lower reaches of the stream, shallow, stony soil supports mainly cacti. Most of the creek's upper portion, once part of the LX Ranch range, is on property owned by the heirs of Chanslor E. Weymouth, a son-in-law of Robert Benjamin (Ben) Mastersonqv. The ranch headquarters is near the junction of the north and south branches of the creek. Plum Creek's lower portion, in Potter County, has been partially inundated by Lake Meredith since 1963.
