ELIZABETH CREEK. Elizabeth Creek rises in southeastern Wise County (at 33°06' N, 97°28' W) and runs southeast for sixteen miles to its mouth on Denton Creek in Denton County (at 33°02' N, 97°14' W). The stream is named for a daughter of John B. Denton and is located in the Grand Prairie region of north central Texas. It traverses an area characterized by limestone and loamy mud soils that support grasses, primarily silver bluestem and Texas wintergrass, and crops.
