TURKEY PAINT CREEK. Turkey Paint Creek rises south of Red Lake two miles southwest of Stamford in north central Jones County (at 32°56' N, 99°51' W) and runs northeast to its mouth on Paint Creek, four miles northwest of Stamford in south central Haskell County (at 33°00' N, 99°48' W). Densely dissected gullies and low hills in the area are surfaced by sparse soils and plants.
