BOOTHE CREEK. Boothe Creek rises four miles northwest of Dalby Springs in southwestern Bowie County (at 33°26' N, 94°44' W) and runs south for ten miles to its mouth on the Sulphur River, three miles west of the Red River county line (at 33°19' N, 94°42' W). The creek crosses an area of low-rolling hills surfaced by loam that supports dense woods of post oak, blackjack oak, and elm. The stream may have been named for Benjamin Boothe, an original grantee of land in the area.
