There are four vessels in the Buddy Jones collection at the Gregg County Historical Museum from the Mud Creek site, also known as the Damon Ramey site; it has not been formally recorded and does not have a state trinomial. This site is near Reklaw, Texas, by U.S. 84 where it crosses Mud Creek, a major southward flowing tributary to the Angelina River. Bill Young, now deceased, had told the senior author several years ago about a Caddo cemetery at this approximate location on Mud Creek.
According to Jones, a total of five burials were excavated here, although it is not known if all five burials were excavated by Jones or instead by other unknown individuals. The four vessels documented from the site are from Burials 3 and 4.
