DENTON CREEK (Franklin County). Denton Creek rises a half mile south of Mount Vernon in central Franklin County (at 33°08' N, 95°14' W) and runs northwest for six miles to its mouth on Big Creek, two miles northeast of Saltillo in Hopkins County (at 33°12' N, 95°18' W). It traverses an area of gently undulating to rolling terrain surfaced by loamy soil with a clayey subsoil that supports dense woods, in which pines and various hardwoods predominate.
