This Elisha Creech was born abt 1825 in Harlan County, Kentucky. Wife was Levina Kilbourne born abt 1825 probably of Lee County, Virginia. Family settled in Madison County, Arkansas. After Lavina's death, Elisha remarried to a woman named Narcissus Adeline (Tabor) Gantt.
I am interested in connecting with anyone that has knowledge of this family. I believe there is a chance my GGG-Grandmother was a daughter of Elisha and Lavina's. It is a mystery exactly where she came from, but her name was shown as "Mary Jane Scritch" born in Arkansas on her son's Texas death certificate. According to census forms, she was born sometime between 1853-57 in either Arkansas or Kentucky. Her parents are shown on different census forms as being from Kentucky or Virginia. Her husband was a man from Missouri, but I've had no luck discovering when or where the two were married. Their first child Susie was born about 1875 in Tarrant County (Ft Worth), Texas.
Census forms show that Elisha had a daughter with Lavina born about 1853 named "Mary" or "Jane M". I am looking for any shred of evidence that could prove or disprove that my GGG-Grandmother "Mary Jane Scritch" was in fact this daughter.
The ideal would be if someone knows about the existence of a Creech family bible that might list the marriages for each of Elisha's children. However, if you have any knowledge of this particular Creech family or even suggestions concerning the origins of Mary Jane Scritch, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!
