DUTCHMAN CREEK (Knox County). Dutchman Creek rises six miles southwest of Benjamin in southwestern Knox County (at 33°33' N, 99°53' W) and runs east for ten miles to its mouth on the Brazos River, a mile east of Lake Catherine (at 33°33' N, 99°43' W). The stream is dammed to form lakes Catherine and Davis. It traverses flat terrain with local shallow depressions and steep to gentle slopes, surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support scrub brush and water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
