KELLY CREEK (Morris County). Kelly Creek rises five miles north of Daingerfield in central Morris County (at 33°06' N, 94°41' W) and runs southeast for 17½ miles to its mouth on Black Cypress Creek 3½ miles northeast of Hughes Springs in southwestern Cass County (at 33°02' N, 94°32' W). The soils are predominantly sandy loam, and the land is for the most part used as pasture. The creek was probably named for Jesse Kelly, whose land grant in western Cass County bordered the stream.
