MURPHY CREEK. Murphy Creek rises ten miles northeast of Albany in northeastern Shackelford County (at 32°49' N, 99°10' W) and runs northeast five miles to its mouth on Foyle Creek, four miles southeast of Fort Griffin State Park (at 32°53' N, 99°08' W). It traverses an area of rolling hills, surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support scrub brush, mesquite, cacti, and grasses.
