This is a response to Chip Torgerson about Rachal Chason Creech and Emma Callahan Creech.
First let me say I have just become acquainted with the genforum within the last 2 days and I was throwing family names of interest to me in genealogy research of more than 10 yrs. ago. when I ran across your Creech quiry and so I'm giving you some quick info off the top of my head.I'm sure you've looked up census records on both Rachel and Emma.Rachel was born in Tallahassee,Fl. in 1844, a year before Fl. became a state.Her fater was Josiah Chason (c.1813 to c.1847) and Mary Lambert Chason (later Spooner). MaryLambert Chason was born in Lauren Co. Ga. c.1817 the daughter of Noah Lambert and Polly Willis.Mary died in 1884 in the Decatur/Grady counties area but burial site is unknown to me. Rachel had older twin brothers Jonathan and John born c. 1836 and older sister Mary, who was married first to Benjamin Creech and when she died to Rachel Chason.Rachel had a number of children by Benjamin Creech. The ones I can remember were Warren, Emma, Noah and Lizetta and I think a couple more.Benjamin died in 1901 in the Colquitt Co. area I think and Rachel in 1917 and is buried in a rural cemetery there in northern Grady Co.I have a picture of her.I also have one of Emma when she was quite old and one of Lizetta with some of her nieces by an older sister.I know she was married to a Callahan and was still living until about 1960as she wrote to my grandmother Maggie.I don't know what happened to her.I think she lived in Fl. with the family of a son.Again this garbled message is given to you without looking at any notes and just from memory.You respond to my e-mail address, firstname.lastname@example.org, and then if you do and want other info. that I might know, I'll send you my home address so you can giveme your home address.However, don't necessarily expect an immediate response because I'm disorganized and have a lot of other things I do.Anyway hopes this helps some and that I hear from you the this family genforum.Oh, and another thing I'm not very good with this computer.Kirk
