Bingham Branch rises at the juncture of North and South Bingham creeks, four miles southeast of Forestburg in southeast Montague County (at 33°31' N, 97°30' W), and flows southeast for two miles to its mouth on Clear Creek in Cooke County (at 33°30' N, 97°28' W). It crosses flat to rolling terrain surfaced by sandy and clay loams that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses. For most of the county's history the Bingham Branch area has been used as rangeland. Henry Bingham once owned the land that the stream crosses.

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