MILLER SPRINGS CREEK. Miller Springs Creek rises one mile east of the Motley-Floyd county line in west central Motley County (at 34°06' N, 101°02' W) and flows northeast for four miles to its mouth on Tom Ball Creek, two miles southwest of White Star (at 34°08' N, 100°59' W). The creek's primary source is Miller Springs; both the springs and creek were named after an early settler. The area was near the northern boundary of the Matador Ranch in Motley County. The surrounding moderately steep slopes with locally high relief are surfaced by shallow to moderately deep silt loam that supports mesquite and grasses.
