POMPEY CREEK. Pompey Creek rises (at 31°44' N, 98°42' W) in northern Mills County at the Comanche county line and runs southwest for fourteen miles to its mouth (at 31°33' N, 98°45' W) on Willoughby Creek, five miles southwest of Mullin. Near the source of the stream, steep slopes and benches are surfaced by shallow clay loams that support juniper, live oak, mesquite, and grasses. About five miles into the creek's course, the local soils become shallow and sandy.
