Are you sure that is Pawpaw?  The fm thins to 5 ft thick or less in that area, and is mapped undivided from that area south, where it quickly pinches out.  Maps can be deceiving in stream incised areas, with the actual outcrop being a formation or 2 below what is mapped above stream level.  You might compare your finds with Ft. Worth and Weno fauna as well.

 

Right on.  There are several formations nearby this creek.  There are Duck, Denton, Paw Paw/Wena, Alluvium, Fluviatile.  Basically this creek is either surrounded by Paw Paw by both sides or Duck /Denton/Fort Worth.  I just picked the one that was closest.   I'm thinking this maybe a duck creek since same sediments are very similar to duck creek formations at the Lake Texoma.

Appears to be more like Duck Creek Fm.  The Pawpaw is primarily a marine deposit.  I've only heard of one dinosaur from that strata. 

 

Looks like a fun trip.

Thanks.   I pulled these out of Waco Duck Creek formation.   Didn't quiet came out right on the left which broke off in half and other half still in the cliff.

These are Lake Texoma Duck Creek formation which came out great.
