OPOSSUM CREEK (Williamson County). Opossum Creek rises three miles southwest of Jarrell in north central Williamson County (at 30°47' N, 97°37' W). The stream, intermittent in its upper reaches, flows in a southeasterly direction for seventeen miles to its mouth on Willis Creek, one mile south of Granger (at 30°42' N, 97°27' W). The creek flows through gently sloping to gently rolling terrain surfaced by clayey soils used predominantly as cropland. Its banks are wooded in places with mesquite, juniper, and oak trees.
