POST OAK CREEK (Jones County). Post Oak Creek rises in northwest Lueders near the Missouri, Kansas and Texas Railroad in eastern Jones County (at 32°50' N, 99°40' W) and flows southeast five miles to its mouth on the Clear Fork of the Brazos River, northeast of Lueders just across the county line in western Shackelford County (at 32°49' N, 99°36' W). It flows from flat to gently sloping terrain, surfaced by shallow silt loam that supports mesquite and grasses, into flat terrain with local shallow depressions, surfaced by clay and sandy loam that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
