SULPHUR DRAW. Sulphur Draw rises in west central Cochran County (at 33°34' N, 103°03' W) and flows southeast fifty-two miles, across southwestern Hockley County, to join Lost Draw in central Terry County (at 33°13' N, 102°20' W). The stream passes through flat to gently rolling terrain where sandy soil supports scrub brush and grasses. Because of the numerous springs around Sulphur Draw this area used to be a favorite spot for the Comanches. Indian artifacts have been found along Sulphur Draw.
