Welcome to Mud Creek (aka 'Muddy Creek') ...

Although we found mention of Mud Creek during our research, we have little information about it.<1> We believe that Mud Creek had a post office at one time. We have done a cursory search and haven't been able to find any evidence that the community still exists..

While we are confident that Mud Creek was located in Marion County, we don't know its actual location within the county.

We've added Mud Creek to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Mud Creek - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Mud Creek, please Contact Us.

<1>If we encounter the name of what might be a community, our methodology is to add that name to our Gazetteer. For example, we might find a sentence like "He went south past Mud Creek and then turned east". While Mud Creek could be some kind of landmark, we think that it's more likely to be a community. We've added Mud Creek as a placeholder with the hope that we'll be able to add more information in the future.

Just as a reminder: Our definition of a community is rather broad and includes those places (or areas) where several families lived and had a name which identified that place. For example, you might hear somebody say that they are going over to Bird Creek to see Pete ... Bird Creek is just a gas station and a couple of homes at the crossroads. While it might not be on the map, everybody in the area knows it by that name.

Places of interest include buildings at a crossroad, several families clustered in a hollow or maybe the location of a way station. It also includes places like mines, lumber camps, ferry crossings, etc. The community might still exist, is now gone or only existed for just a short period of time.

Also keep in mind that Mud Creek could have been on the original document by mistake, misspelled, the original/alternate name of a community that we've listed elsewhere or was placed in the wrong county. Sometimes a post office or train station would have a different name than the community where it's located, so two names might be referring to the same community - we're working to straighten it all out.
