TUTTLE CREEK (PANOLA COUNTY)
TUTTLE CREEK (Panola County). Tuttle Creek (Tuttles Creek) rises one-half mile south of Brakens in northeastern Panola County (at 32°20' N, 94°11' W) and flows southwest for four miles to its mouth on Jackson Creek, in the Elysian gas field (at 32°18' N, 94°15' W). The stream is intermittent in its upper reaches. The surrounding flat terrain is surfaced by clay and sandy loam that supports water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses. The creek was probably named for Daniel Tuttle, who had a patent on the land in the area.
