KINGS BRANCH (Cass County). Kings Branch rises 4½ miles northeast of Marietta in northwestern Cass County (at 33°12' N, 94°29' W) and runs northeast for four miles to its mouth on Whatley Creek, less than a mile from the mouth of that creek on Wright Patman Lake (at 33°15' N, 94°27' W). The soils through which the creek passes are loamy, and the gently undulating to gently rolling terrain was originally heavily wooded with pines and various hardwoods.
