TANKERSLY CREEK. Tankersly Creek rises 4½ miles northeast of Winfield in western Titus County (at 33°13' N, 95°03' W). Intermittent in its upper reaches, the stream runs southeast for three miles into Tankersly Lake, a large reservoir which has been made by a dam on the creek just northwest of Mount Pleasant. Leaving the lake, the creek continues southeast for 5½ miles to its mouth on Big Cypress Creek, six miles south of Mount Pleasant (at 33°05' N, 94°59' W). The gently undulating to rolling area is surfaced by loam that once supported forests of pines and various hardwoods.
