TURKEY CREEK (Comanche County). Turkey Creek rises two miles southwest of Pounds in north central Comanche County (at 32°05' N, 98°37' W). The stream is formed by the confluence of North and South Turkey creeks and runs east for three miles to its mouth on the Sabana River, five miles southwest of De Leon and two miles northwest of Proctor Lake (at 32°04' N, 98°35' W). The rolling prairies in the area are covered with clay loam that supports mesquite and grasses. The Turkey Creek Cemetery, a remnant of an earlier town, is located along the South Turkey branch.
