TIMBER CREEK (Fannin County). Timber Creek rises 1½ miles west of Bonham in central Fannin County (at 33°35' N, 96°12' W) and runs north for six miles to its mouth on Lake Bonham, just north of Bonham (at 33°38' N, 96°05' W). It crosses flat to rolling prairie surfaced by dark, commonly calcareous clays, that support mesquite trees, grasses, and cacti. The area is used for range and cropland.
