DITCH (MOTLEY COUNTY)
DITCH (Motley County). The Ditch rises twelve miles northeast of Matador in west central Motley County (at 100°42' N, 34°09' W) and runs east through isolated ranchland for eight miles to its mouth on the Middle Pease River, one mile north of the site of Tee Pee City (at 100°35' N, 34°07' W). An early Matador Ranch map indicated two creeks, Spring and Brush, in the area of the stream now called the Ditch. The Matador map stated that the region contained mostly high-quality grazing land.
