TECUMSEH CREEK. Tecumseh Creek, also known as Flat Rock Branch, rises six miles southwest of Throckmorton in southwest Throckmorton County (at 33°10' N, 99°20' W) and runs southeast for thirteen miles to its mouth on the Clear Fork of the Brazos River, four miles northwest of Reynolds Ranch oilfield (at 33°02' N, 99°15' W). In the creek's upper reaches steep slopes and benches are surfaced by shallow clay loam that supports juniper, live oak, mesquite, and grasses. Further down rolling hills are surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support scrub brush, cacti, grasses, live oak, and juniper.
