I don't know if there is any connection or not, but the names and places all match up. I have a Minnie Creighton, daughter of Nathaniel Creighton and Susan Snyder. Minnie shows as being born in Ohio, December 27, 1848, and lived in Baker County, Oregon. She married someone named Abbott, and later, Benjamin B. Day. Benjamin had a brother who lived in Clackamas County. His sister in law's maiden name was Rebecca Hart, and the name Mariah was used in his mother's family often. There may be no connection at all, but the names seemed similar enough to ask. Thanks!
