Hello, I have just started looking (again) for my Great Grandmother, Ida Bell CREECH Rains McGaughey's linage. Ida Bell CREECH Rains b. 1880 Sebastian Co. Bloomer, Arkansas.
I am looking for information about her mothers CREECH line.
Her mother was Elizabeth (Betsy) CREECH b.1843-44 in N.C. Her parents were b. in N.C. (??MAY have been Eli and Sally CREECH??) Her father was William Rains b.in N.C. His parents were b. in N.C. They were Married 22 Nov 1858 in Northampton, Johnston, N.C.
I think I have found them in: 1860 Census, Neuse River, Johnston, N.C. William Rains, Jr. and wife Patsey, (Betsey)
1870 Census, Burleson, Texas same family information but off a couple years
1880 Census, Big Creek, Sebastian, Arkansas William Rains, head, age 40, b NC parents b NC Elizabeth, wife, age 36, b NC, parents b NC Eugenia, daughter, age 19 b in NC Sarah C.,daughter, 13, b NC Willie J., daughter, age 9 b TX William H, son, age 5 b in Texas Ida E., daughter, age 2 months, b in Arkansas (my GGrandmother)(that E is most likely suppose to be a B for Ida Bell)
If anyone has any information about my CREECH line, please reply....
