PERRIMAN CREEK. Perriman Creek rises in southwestern Coryell County (at 31°17' N, 98°02' W) two miles southeast of the Hillsdale cemetery and runs southeast for eight miles to its mouth (at 31°15' N, 97°56' W) on Table Rock Creek, seven miles north of Copperas Cove. The surrounding terrain is flat to rolling, with occasional steep slopes and benches; the clay loam soils support oak, juniper, and grasses.
