FRAZIER CREEK (Cass County). Frazier Creek rises five miles southwest of Douglassville in northern Cass County (at 33°09' N, 94°26' W) and runs southeast for thirty-one miles before joining Jims Bayou to form James Bayou fifteen miles northeast of Jefferson in northeastern Marion County (at 32°52' N, 94°07' W). The stream, which is intermittent in its upper reaches, runs through nearly level to gently rolling flood-prone terrain with loamy soils that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses. The creek was probably named for James and Ebenezer Frazier, both of whom owned land near its upper reaches.
