BEECHAM BRANCH. Beecham Branch rises just southeast of Mallard in southeast Montague County (at 33°34' N, 97°38' W) and flows south for four miles to its mouth on Denton Creek, 1½ miles northeast of Jackson (at 33°32' N, 97°41' W). It traverses flat to rolling terrain surfaced by deep to shallow sandy loams that support brush and grasses. For most of the county's history the Beecham Branch area has been used as rangeland.
