HAM CREEK (Rusk County). Ham Creek rises two miles west of Union Springs Church in southern Rusk County (at 31°58' N, 94°40' W) and flows southwest for seven miles to its mouth on Frasier Branch, just south of Bane Cemetery (at 31°56' N, 94°44' W). It traverses flat to rolling terrain surfaced by sandy and clay loams that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
