JACKSON CREEK (Harrison County). Jackson Creek rises six miles southwest of Stricklin Springs in southeastern Harrison County (at 32°23' N, 94°12' W) and runs southwest for 15½ miles, passing through southeastern Harrison and northeastern Panola counties, to its mouth on the Sabine River, eight miles northeast of Carthage in northeastern Panola County (at 32°14' N, 94°14' W). It traverses nearly level terrain surfaced by loamy and clayey soils that support dense patches of pine and hardwood trees along its banks. The area is used predominantly for agriculture.
