SIXMILE CREEK (Panola County). Sixmile Creek, also known as Sixmile Bayou, rises eight miles southwest of Carthage in central Panola County (at 32°08' N, 94°27' W) and flows southeast for thirteen miles to its mouth on the Sabine River, three miles west of Deadwood (at 32°06' N, 94°12' W). The stream is intermittent in its upper reaches. Local flat terrain is surfaced by clay and sandy loam that supports water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
