OWL CREEK (Cherokee County). Owl Creek rises just west of Hume in west central Cherokee County (at 31°58' N, 95°21' W) and runs southwest for six miles to its mouth on the Neches River, two miles southwest of the Todd City oilfield (at 31°56' N, 95°25' W). The stream is intermittent in its upper reaches. It runs through flat to gently rolling country with sandy and clay loam soil that supports grasses and mixed hardwoods and pines.
