WHITE OAK CREEK (Cherokee County). White Oak Creek rises two miles south of Union Hill in southern Cherokee County (at 31°42' N, 95°09' W) and runs south for seven miles to its mouth on Bowles Creek, just south of Weeping Mary (at 31°37' N, 95°09' W). The stream is intermittent in its upper reaches. It travels through flat to gently rolling terrain surfaced by clay and sandy loam that supports grasses, mixed hardwoods, and pines.
