I am also looking for ancestors of William Creath and Margaret Douglas.All the information I have is a brief outline provided by my grandfather's sister who is now deceased and her records are lost.Here's what I have:
My grandfather was John Creath Shepard, born in Vliets, Kansas in 1868; the son of Charles Sprague Shepard (1830-1906) (I have lots on the Shepard's, just can't seem to track down the and Sara Margaret Creath (1831-1901).
Sara was the daughter of William Creath III (1801-1871) and Mary Monahon (1804-1889), the daugher of Peter Monahon who immigrated from Ireland to NJ at the age of 10 and his wife Silence (last name and all dates unknown).
William Creath III was the son of William Creath II (1763-1841) and Margaret Douglas (1766-1852).Margaret was the daughter of James Douglas (1740-aft.1815) and Hannah Huston(?)(1747-1814).Note: Hannah's last name is cut off and could be Husta....
According to her outline, William Creath II was the son of William Creath who came to Virginia from Scotland.No dates or wife's name are on the outline, and that's where my trail goes blank.Does this help in any way?It only seems to make things more confusing for me, after seeing messages posted about an Irish connection.Any insight?
