SLOAN CREEK. Sloan Creek rises 2½ miles southwest of Dodd City in central Fannin County (at 33°30' N, 96°07' W). The stream is intermittent in its upper reaches. It runs northwest for eight miles to its mouth on Bois d'Arc Creek, one mile northeast of Bonham (at 33°30' N, 96°07' W). Flat to rolling prairie with locally shallow depressions is surfaced by clay and sandy loams, which change to dark, commonly calcareous clays and support water-tolerant hardwood, mesquite trees, and various grasses.
