MALLORY CREEK. Mallory Creek, also known as Honey Creek, rises 1½ miles southeast of Brookston and 1½ miles northeast of Ambia in central Lamar County (at 33°37' N, 95°41' W) and runs southeast for eleven miles to its mouth on Justiss Creek, just north of the North Sulphur River at the Delta county line two miles west of Gadston (at 33°29' N, 95°37' W). The surrounding flat to gently rolling terrain descends into low-lying flood plains and is surfaced by deep loam over dark to muddy clay that support grasses interspersed with some mesquite and water-tolerant conifers and hardwoods.
