SOCAGEE CREEK. Socagee Creek (Socagee Bayou) rises sixteen miles northeast of Carthage in northeastern Panola County (at 32°15' N, 94°05' W), at the junction of the East Fork of Socagee Creek (which rises at 32°24' N, 94°08' W) and the West Fork of Socagee Creek (which rises at 32°26' N, 94°10' W). The stream flows southwest for 18½ miles, through eastern Panola County, to its mouth on the Sabine River, three miles northeast of Old Center (at 32°01' N, 94°08' W). The banks of the stream are heavily wooded in places with pine and hardwood trees, and the nearly level terrain is surfaced by loam and clay used predominantly for agricultural purposes.
