Barnett Creek

Type: General Entry

Published: November 1, 1994

Barnett Creek rises in a pool just east of Ladonia and south of Pleasant Grove in southwest Fannin County (at 33°25' N, 95°56' W) and flows southeast for thirteen miles, passing through the northeastern edge of Hunt County, to its mouth on the Middle Sulphur River in southwest Delta County (at 33°17' N, 95°50' W). Near the origin it traverses flat to rolling terrain with some local steep scarps, surfaced by sand that supports oak, juniper, and grasses. The low-lying floodplains downstream are surfaced by mud, sand, and gravel that support water-tolerant grasses, conifers, and hardwoods.

The following, adapted from the Chicago Manual of Style, 15th edition, is the preferred citation for this entry.
