SNAKE CREEK (Titus County). Snake Creek rises 1½ miles northwest of Argo in northeastern Titus County (at 33°16' N, 94°54' W) and runs northeast for 5½ miles to its mouth on White Oak Creek, a half mile west of the Morris county line (at 33°17' N, 94°49' W). The gently undulating to rolling area is surfaced with loamy soils and heavily wooded, with pines and various hardwoods predominating. The creek was probably named for its winding course.
