T-FORTYONE CREEK. T-Fortyone Creek rises twelve miles southeast of Matador in southeast Motley County (at 33°40' N, 100°37' W) and flows northeast for eight miles to its mouth on Salt Creek, two miles west of the Motley-Cottle county line and four miles south of U.S. Highway 62/70 (at 34°45' N, 100°33' W). The small stream, known earlier as Tarrants Creek, is near what was the southeast boundary of the Matador Ranch in Motley County. The surrounding moderately steep slopes are covered with shallow to moderately deep silt loams. Mesquite and grasses grow along the banks of the creek.
