Brush Creek rises two miles northwest of the site of old Tee Pee City in eastern Motley County (at 35°07' N, 100°42' W) and flows east for three miles before entering the Middle Pease River, four miles west of the Motley-Cottle county line (at 35°06' N, 100°35' W). The area was once included within the Matador Ranch lands. The surrounding gently rolling hills have some moderately steep slopes and are surfaced by shallow to moderately deep silt loams that support mesquite and grasses.

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