THICKETY CREEK. Thickety Creek rises five miles southeast of Jasper in east central Jasper County (at 30°53' N, 93°55' W). Intermittent in its upper stages, the creek flows southeast for nineteen miles to its mouth on White Oak Creek, five miles northeast of Bleakwood in Newton County (at 30°42' N, 93°49' W). Thickety Creek flows through the clayey and loamy soils and gently undulating terrain typical of central Newton and Jasper counties. In Jasper County, upper Thickety Creek provided a convenient cut through the heavily wooded conifer and hardwood region for stretches of both the Gulf, Beaumont and Kansas City and the Gulf, Beaumont, and Great Northern railroads.
