MUSTANG CREEK (Grayson County). Mustang Creek rises in extreme west central Grayson County (at 33°36' N, 96°49' W) a mile southeast of Whitesboro and runs east, then north, for nine miles to its mouth on Big Mineral Creek (at 33°41' N, 96°49' W), two miles northeast of Sadler. It traverses flat to rolling terrain, surfaced by sandy and clay loams that support mixed hardwoods, pines, and various grasses. The region historically has served as range and crop land.
