OLEYS CREEK. Oleys Creek rises in extreme northwestern Jones County (at 32°57' N, 100°09' W) and runs north for five miles to its mouth (at 33°00' N, 100°08' W) on the Double Mountain Fork of the Brazos River in south central Stonewall County. It traverses flat to rolling terrain surfaced by silt, clay, and sandy loams that support sparse vegetation including juniper, cacti, and grasses.
