DEADMAN'S CREEK (Knox County). Deadman's Creek rises three miles southeast of Truscott in northwestern Knox County (at 33°44' N, 99°46' W) and runs northeast for six miles to its mouth on the North Wichita River, six miles northeast of Truscott (at 33°48' N, 99°44' W). It passes through an eroded area of densely dissected gullies and low hills, with little soil or vegetation. The creek is reportedly named for Dead Man's Mountain in the northern part of the county.
