COTTONWOOD CREEK (Kent County). Cottonwood Creek rises at Jayton in northeastern Kent County (at 33°16' N, 100°35' W) and runs northeast for four miles to its mouth on Short Croton Creek, in Kent County near the Stonewall county line (at 33°18' N, 100°33' W). The creek traverses moderately steep-sloped terrain surfaced by shallow to moderately deep silt loam soils that support mesquite and grasses.
