MARYS CREEK (Parker County). Marys Creek rises three miles north of Willow Park in eastern Parker County (at 32°48' N, 97°38' W). It was named in memory of Mary Le Bone, an Indian woman who drowned in the creek in the nineteenth century. Marys Creek flows southeast for 14½ miles, passing through nearly level to rolling terrain, surfaced with shallow to deep clay and loam that supports grass. The intermittent stream joins the Clear Fork of the Trinity River in southwestern Tarrant County (at 32°42' N, 97°26' W) just inside the city of Fort Worth.

Weatherford Democrat, August 11, 1939.
