CRUTCHERS CREEK. Crutchers Creek rises six miles south of Texarkana in the southeastern corner of Bowie County (at 33°21' N, 94°05' W) and runs south for three miles to its mouth on the Sulphur River, in Cass County (at 33°18' N, 94°04' W). The creek, which is intermittent in its upper reaches, has been dammed to form Kennedy Lake. The soils along the banks are loamy, and the land is heavily wooded, with various pines and hardwoods predominating. The stream was probably named for William Crutcher, the original grantee of the surrounding land.
