CUMMINS CREEK (Ellis County). Cummins Creek rises near the city limit of Ennis in southeastern Ellis County (at 32°19' N, 96°38' W) and runs southeast for 18½ miles to its mouth on Chambers Creek, three miles north of Corsicana in northeastern Navarro County (at 32°10' N, 96°28' W). The creek traverses flat to rolling terrain surfaced by shallow to deep sandy and clayey loams that support scrub brush, cacti, and some hardwoods. For most of the history of the county, the Cummins Creek area has been used as range and crop land.
