Blundell Creek rises three miles south of Mount Vernon in central Franklin County (at 33°08' N, 95°14' W). It originally ran southeast for fifteen miles to join Big Cypress Creek (at 33°04' N, 95°02' W) 3½ miles southeast of Monticello in Titus County. During the late 1960s the Dallas Power and Light Company constructed a dam across the creek near its mouth to form Lake Monticello. The stream, which is intermittent in its upper and middle reaches, crosses a gently undulating to rolling area with loamy topsoil. The land is heavily wooded, with pines and various hardwoods predominating.

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