LAWRENCE CREEK. Lawrence Creek rises four miles west of Marshall in northwestern Harrison County (at 32°34' N, 94°28' W). The stream, intermittent in its upper reaches, runs northwest for six miles, through northwestern Harrison County, to its mouth on Little Cypress Bayou, eight miles northwest of Marshall (at 32°38' N, 94°29' W). The gently undulating to hilly terrain in the area is surfaced by loam and clay that support dense patches of pine and hardwood trees. The land is used predominantly for agriculture.
