CANEY CREEK (Freestone County). Caney Creek rises less than a mile east of Teague in western Freestone County (at 31°37' N, 96°14' W) and runs northwest for fifteen miles to its mouth on Tehuacana Creek, five miles southeast of Streetman (at 31°51' N, 96°15' W). It crosses flat to rolling prairies with local shallow depressions, surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support hardwoods, pines, conifers, and grasses. The area is used primarily as dry cropland and forest.
