JORDAN CREEK (Cherokee County). Jordan Creek rises three miles west of Jacksonville in northwestern Cherokee County (at 31°58' N, 95°21' W) and runs northwest for six miles to its mouth on the Neches River, just south of Cuney (at 32°01' N, 95°25' W). The stream is intermittent in its upper reaches. It traverses flat to gently rolling terrain, surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support grasses and mixed hardwoods and pines.
