WILBURN CREEK. Wilburn Creek rises five miles south of Linden in southern Cass County (at 33°48' N, 94°22' W). Intermittent in its upper and middle reaches, the stream flows southeast for eight miles to its mouth on Jims Bayou, three miles southwest of Kildare (at 32°55' N, 94°16' W). The surrounding terrain varies from gently undulating to hilly, surfaced by loamy and sandy soils and heavily wooded, with pines and various hardwoods predominating.
