LATHAM CREEK. Latham Creek, which was named in honor of early settler Jack Latham, rises nine miles northwest of Cherokee in southern San Saba County (at 31°03' N, 98°50' W) and runs north for six miles to its mouth on Wallace Creek (at 31°06' N, 98°50' W). It crosses generally flat terrain with localized dissection. Vegetation primarily consists of Ashe juniper, live oak, mesquite, and grasses growing in stony and shallow clayey soil.
