Leola, I see from your signature line (from Joshua Creech) that you must be a "Johnston County" Creech. So am I - Joshua Sr, Jesse, Bennett, John Bunyon, Stephen Worley, Avon Odell, Charles Waddell.All farmers until me - I am however a farm owner, but do very little farming myself.
We are north in Johnston County - Jesse and Bennett settled around the Shoehill community - John Bunyon, Stephen Worley, Avon Odell and myself settled around the Emit Community.
Though I have found Mr. James M. Creech's book helpful with earlier Creeches, I have the book to have many errors in the Johnston County Creech's.My particular line he has really messed up with people in the wrong families and wrong generations, wrong spouses, and or just completely left out.
I find your idea about us possible been descended from the Critchton Clan of Scotland very intriguing.A name change here could explain why so many of us are coming up against a blank wall with Richard Creech/Critch.
