TUCK BRANCH. Tuck Branch rises four miles northwest of Marietta in northwestern Cass County (at 33°11' N, 94°36' W) and runs north for 3½ miles to its mouth on Jennings Lake, 3½ miles from the northwestern corner of Cass County (at 33°14' N, 94°36' W). The area around the creek is flood-prone, and native vegetation includes water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses. The stream was named for Henry Tuck, who in 1885 purchased the land through which the creek flows.
