CUTHAND CREEK. Cuthand Creek rises near Byrdtown in eastern Lamar County (at 33°41' N, 95°23' W) and runs southeast into Red River County, traveling a total of thirty-three miles to its mouth on the Sulphur River, three miles southeast of the Harts Bluff community in southeastern Red River County (at 33°23' N, 94°54' W). The stream, which is intermittent in its upper reaches, was named for the Delaware Indian Cuthand, who is said to have lived on its banks. Cuthand Creek traverses flat to gently rolling terrain surfaced by clay and sandy loam that supports grasses and mixed hardwoods and pines.
