DOZIER CREEK (Cooke County). Dozier Creek rises seven miles northwest of Gainesville in north central Cooke County (at 33°43' N, 97°13' W) and runs southeast for seven miles to its mouth on the Elm Fork of the Trinity River, just west of Gainesville (at 33°38' N, 97°10' W). The creek was named for Adam Dozier, an original grantee of the land across which it runs. The local terrain is variable and surfaced by shallow stony clay loams that support oak and juniper trees, chaparral, cacti, and various grasses. The area has served as crop and range land.
