RINGGOLD CREEK. Ringgold Creek rises three miles south of Oakwood in northeastern Leon County (at 31°32' N, 95°50' W) and runs east four miles to its mouth on Boons Creek, four miles southeast of Oakwood (at 31°33' N, 95°48' W). The surrounding sloping to nearly level terrain is surfaced by sandy and clay loam that supports stands of pecan-elm, water oak-elm, elm-hackberry, and post oak-black hickory woods on the banks. The creek is named for Thomas Ringgold, the original owner of a tract of land below the mouth. Sand Flat is located on the north bank of the lower creek.
