RESLEY CREEK (Comanche County).

The stream rises in rolling prairies surfaced by clay loam which supports mesquite and grasses, then passes briefly through steep slopes covered with shallow clay loam, then returns to terrain similar to that in which it began. Early settler George Resley, for whom the creek was named, came to the area in the late 1850s.
