ELIHU CREECH

I was born in Lee County, Virginia, February 17, 1816. My father's name was Elijah. He raised 22 children, 11 sons and 11 daughters. His brothers, John and Jonathan, each reared large families. John had 19 and Jonathan had 20. My uncle John lived and died in Harlan County at the mouth of Clover Lick Creek, on Poor Fork on Cumberland. The Harlan County Creeches are the descendants of my uncle John. Mrs. Elijah Clay of Breathitt is my sister. She is two years my senior. The Creeches are Irish. Rev. F. L.

We appear to have several congruent lines in our families. I am descended from Zachariah Morgan through his son Jess who married Rebecca Howard - from John Creech through his son by Peggy Wells, John Jr. who married Sarah Smith, daughter of John Henry and Elizabeth Ledford Smith - and through his daughter Charlotte, who married Moses Maggard. I am interested in how you discovered that John's father was Enoch - people have been wrangling over his parentage for years, even through his further ancestry was pretty well established. Have you seen the JDDickey entry describing Zachariah Morgan's family. According to this record he is the illegitimate son of Hannah Morgan (daughter of Charles) and, I think, John Belton or Bolton. Hannah later married a Mr. West and had more children. I have been unable to trace the Morgans back any further, although several members of the family of Morgan Morgan of what later became West virginia are reputed to have moved south. Everyone is always trying to link up with Revolutionary War hero General Daniel Morgan, so any old accounts of relationhip to him I immediately suspect. I find all this extremely interesting - and terribly frustrating. Let me know what you think and maybe we can exchange some data.

Regards David

Subj: Re: How's this look about Jesse Morgan? Date: 12/7/98 9:33:27 PM Central Standard Time From: JDBegley To: Linnie777

Linda,

I sincerely hope we DONT look like twins - for your sake. I have the dark hair (now a bit gray) and the hazel eyes, but I also inherited the Maggard weight and the Begley shortness. I'm in Lexington and just turned 46.

Thanks for the Morgan data. I branch out from Jesse's son Samuel and Sallie Asher. Their son Jesse married Rebecca Asher (daughter of Levi Asher and Nancy Howard) and were the parents of my grandmother Minta, who married James Begley.

Its amazing how frequently one encounters the same individuals in this endeavor. For a while there everywhere I turned I was facing another Howard or Asher. I also discovered that one of my best friends is descended from a man whose brother was murdered by one of my ancestors (and for which he was hanged in 1817). She reassured me that her family doesn't hold grudges.

I am interested in how Enoch Creech was identified as John Creech's father. I have seen where John Creech and Stephen Creech were suggested as candidates, but noone appeared to know for sure. Does this mean that his mother can be identified, too? I am descended from John twice - through his son John Jr who married Sarah Smith (is she a part of your Smith line?) and through his daughter Charlotte by his second wife.

I dont know if I have any information that might be of value to you - but I'm certainly willing to share. I have some data on the early Creechs and wish I could connect the lines connected to them (Davis, Beall, etc.) to families who were iat the place and time, but dont appear to have left much documentation.

Regards

David Linda,

Just a few things. The Harlan County History is incorrect in having Old John married to Sarah Smith - she was John Jr's wife. Old John's second wife was Sarah Armstrong - who was probably a Hall before her first marriage to the unknown Mr. Armstrong. John Jr was married Sarah Smith, daughter of John Henry and Elizabeth Ledford Smith. Their daughter Celia was my great-great-grandmother who helped raise my grandfather after his father died in 1888. His mother Sallie (Sarah) was named for her grandmother. Celia was short (about 4'10") with black hair with very little gray (I wish I had inherited THAT!). She was very determined and once killed a mountain lion that was trying to get into her chickens. The only time she backed down was when her sons pet bear (that had gotten a little big) walked into the kitchen and took the salt bacon out of the pot of beans on the fire. She knew when to choose her battles. She died of a stroke in December of 1898 (I think). Her husband Woleary Campbell, son of William and Elizabeth Cornett Campbell, died in 1902.

from the Harlan County court records (I dont have the year)

Thomas Creech versus John Creech's heirs

Reciting that John Creech, Sr. departed this life in Harlan County intestate, leaving the following heirs at law:

to wit, Sarah Creech, widow of the said deceased, John Dixon and Martha his wife, late Creech; Alexander Dixon and Elizabeth his wife, late Creech; Joseph Blair and Celia his wife, late Creech; Jason Fields and Anne his wife, late Creech; Enoch Creech, Samuel Creech, Absalom Creech, Isham Stamper and Sarah his wife, late Creech; Elijah Creech, William Creech, Abner Lewis and Mary his wife, late Creech; Jacob Gilliam and Emma his wife, late Creech; Gilbert Creech; Moses Maggard and Charlotte his wife, late Creech; Isaiah Creech; William Campbell and Katie his wife, late Creech; Charles Cornett and Mary his wife, late Creech; and Elizabeth Creech, the children and heirs of Stephen Creech, deceased.

This case was to settle the estate of Old John.

Richard Creech immigrated from Scotland to Jamestown, Virginia in 1635 married Frances Beall. Richard and Frances, along with their infant daughter, were killed by Indians. Their two sons Henry and Nicholas were raised by Frances' brother John.

Henry Creech, born about 1637 in James City County, Virginia married Joyce Paine, daughter of Benjamin Paine

Richard Creech, II, born 1662 in Albemarle County, North Carolina married Tamer Eliza Davis, daughter of Samuel Davis (I have been unable to connect her with the Davis family who were descended from Pocahontas' sister)

Richard Creech, III born 1705 in Nansemond County, Virginia married Mary ----

Their two sons were: Benjamin Creech, born 1724 in Nansemond County, North Carolina, who married Mary LEWISdaughter of Thomas Lewis

Hi, Been awhile since I've seen your name come thru. Thanks for forwarding this message to me. Now I have a couple of questions also. Where did the G. or C. come from in John Creech's name? Do you have a book and page # for the court case in Harlan Co re: Heirs of John Creech? I have the date-Aug 23, 1850. Would just like to know where it was filed etc. I have a typed version but I would like a copy of the orginal. And, I believe that John's 2nd wife was Sarah Armstrong Hall. Not Sarah Hall Armstrong but could be wrong. She had sons Preston, Eli, Alfed and Joseph Hall. What I do not know is her first husband's name. Take that back-just found it. It was William Hall. I also show a Jonathan as son of Henry B. and Elizabeth Lewis. Also a Martha. Not carved in stone.

Good talking to you again Me again, Looks like I neglected to answer your question "Who was the ancestors of Henry B. Creech"/ My records show that Enoch and Susannah Blair Creech were his parents and John Creech (the old one not Jr. ) and Peggy Wells , the first wife; were the parents of Enoch Creech who m. Elizabeth Lewis. Old John Creech and Sarah Armstong Hall only had 4/5 kids. All the others belonged to Peggy Wells, the first wife.

From there it was to cross the river and go up a branch called the Clover Gap branch to the fork, then up the fork ridge, through the Clover Gap to Bennett Ball's. They reported that this road across the mountain from Poor Fork to Clover Fork would "save the citizens 20 miles in traveling else crossing the mountain with no road."

This John Creech, Sr. appears to have been married three or four times. His first wife, PEGGY WELLS and the third was SARAH ARMSTRONG, who was born in North Carolina in 1788 and was still living in 1850. It is suggested that there may have been a wife named SALLY HALL. The census of 1830 (probably Harlan Co., Kentucky) lists John Creech, Sr. with seven boys at home and eight with own households (15 boys). Four girls married and four at home (8 girls). This would total 23 children. I have record of only 17, but perhaps some died young.
