I am a descendant of Nancy Jane Creamer and Hiram Hovis Hand.Their daughter Ida Hand married Henry Green Hall. My mother Trecie Hall McDaniel, is the daughter of Ida Hand and Henry Green Hall.
I am looking to find more information on the Creamer side of the family. The earliest relative I know of is the James Henry Creamer from your posting.
I don't know where to look for additional information. I do know that Nancy Jane my great-grandmother was born in Alabama in 1865, but I am not sure whethr her parents were born in Alabama or Georgia.I have found other postings giving her birthdate as 1866, but this is incorrect - as is the DOB on her recently restored gavesite.When her grave was redone the DOB was erroneously engraved.
According to oral stories she "Nancy" told my grandmother.Her father James Henry Creamer served in the Civil War.After the Civil War the family traveled a bit through Eastern Alabama, Northern Florida, and Western Georgia before settling near Hazelhurst, GA where she married my great-grandfather Hiram Hovis Hand in 1880.
If anyone knows the birth state of James Henry Creamer, please reply.
