PECAN CREEK (FANNIN COUNTY)
PECAN CREEK (Fannin County). Pecan Creek rises within the southern city limits of Ladonia in extreme southeastern Fannin County (at 33°25' N, 95°57' W) and flows for 12½ miles, first south, then southeast just north of Commerce. Pecan Creek drains a flat area with local shallow depressions and a surface of clay and sandy loams. The area has served as crop and range land. Water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and various grasses are common along the stream. Pecan Creek empties into the Middle Sulfur River in extreme southwestern Delta County just east of the county line (at 33°17' N, 95°51' W).
