BRINKLEY CREEK. Brinkley Creek rises four miles southeast of Turlington in east central Freestone County (at 31°41' N, 96°01' W) and runs northeast for three miles to its mouth on an unnamed marsh two miles southeast of Indian Creek Lake (at 31°43' N, 95°59' W). It crosses flat to rolling terrain with local escarpments, surfaced by deep, fine sandy loams that support hardwood and conifer forests. Developed parts of the land in the area are used primarily for farming.
