DULANEY CREEK. Dulaney Creek rises at Ben Jones Spring, six miles northwest of Sweetwater in far northwestern Nolan County and a mile south of the Nolan-Fisher county line (at 32°30' N, 100°30' W), and runs northeast for six miles to its mouth on Kildoogan Creek, just north of the county line in far south central Fisher County (at 32°32' N, 100°26' W). It traverses flat terrain with locally shallow depressions, surfaced by expansive clays that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
