INDIAN CREEK (Wood County). Indian Creek rises in the Winnsboro oilfield just southwest of Winnsboro in northeastern Wood County (at 32°57' N, 95°19' W) and runs south for 6½ miles to its mouth on Big Sandy Creek, two miles south of Lake Winnsboro (at 32°52' N, 95°20' W). The creek is intermittent in its upper reaches but is joined near its source by a tributary originating further east and also called Indian Creek. The local terrain is gently rolling to flat and is surfaced by sandy and clay loams that support hardwoods and pines. The Webster community, one of the oldest communities in the county, grew up near the headwaters of Indian Creek.
