Location of Julia's Creek

Classification: Query
In a 1803-1804 pre-emption grant to Zachariah Landrum, he was awarded a tract of land "west of the Tombigbee River" "on Julia's Creek" and "below the old Choctaw line." Zachariah Landrum was counted in the 1803 tax roll, the 1808 census and 1810 census - all being described in Washington County.

I have searched a detailed, but modern, topographical map of Washington County (and surrounding areas), and cannot find a Julia's Creek. I am presuming that at some time after 1803 it was renamed. Does anyone have any clues as to where it might have been, and if renamed, what the current name is? Also I have seen a reference to the "old Choctaw line" in 1799 petition, so the line existed before 1799. Does anyone know where it was? Was it the current northern county line of Washington County?

Thank you for any help.
