you are correct I should have included a ? mark after the statement. The information was sent to me over 15 years ago by a woman who was 74 at that time and a decendant of Richard Creech she had been doing genealogy for 30 years the old fashion way. by going to library and court houses and such and didn;t rely on the internet for information. she didn't cite her sources and died before I could get anymore information from her. But nothing I have seen since has convinced me since that he didn't, my mother was a Creech also and she told me that she had always been told her family came from Scotland. it was story she had always been told. when I started doing this no one pointed out to me the value of sources, which I have since learned to collect, everyone can take the statement with a grain of salt just like I do about everything I read on the internet.
