CLARKS CREEK (Harrison County). Clarks Creek rises two miles east of Longview in southwestern Harrison County (at 32°30' N, 94°38' W) and runs southeast for eleven miles, through Harrison County, to its mouth on the Sabine River, three miles east of Easton (at 32°24' N, 94°32' W). It was named for Isaac Clark, an antebellum settler in Harrison County. The surrounding nearly level to hilly terrain is surfaced by loam and clay that support dense patches of pine and hardwood trees. The land is used predominantly for agriculture.
