LANDERS BRANCH. Landers Branch rises seven miles northeast of Muenster in north central Cooke County (at 33°43' N, 97°17' W) and runs north 2½ miles to its mouth on South Fish Creek, four miles southeast of Marysville (at 33°45' N, 97°16' W). The local terrain is variable and is surfaced by shallow, stony, clay loams and deep to shallow expansive clays that support oak, juniper, chaparral, cacti, and grasses. The stream was named for Harrison Lander, the first settler on it.
