WILLIAMS CREEK (Cooke County). Williams Creek begins three miles southwest of Muenster in west central Cooke County (at 33°35' N, 97°25' W) and runs southeast for seven miles before joining Clear Creek just east of Rosston (at 33°30' N, 97°23' W). The stream flows through variable terrain surfaced by stony clay loams that support oak, cacti, and grasses. For most of the county's history, the Williams Creek area has been used as range and crop land.
