Stewart,thanks for catching my errors!I do have this line of Creech's just as you have it, but I goofed when I submitted a postto this forum.What I should have said is this: Looking for info on these families: *John Deveraux Creech m. to Lucinda Batten *Jesse S. Creech m. to Sarah C. Batten (Jesse and John were sons of Jesse Sr. and Mary Ann Wall) *Stephen T. Creech m. to Martha Della Batten *Cullen R. Creech Jr. m. to Piety Batten *Lucinda Creech m. to John Bunion Batten (my husband's grandparents) (Stephen, Cullen and Lucinda are children of of Cullen Sr. and Esther Hicks). All of the above Battens to whom these Creech children married were the children of Robert Batten and Martha Stancil. I sure goofed up when I first posted!John D. Jesse S. Creech would be first cousins, once removed to Stephen, Cullen and Lucinda. My father-in-law Charlie Albert Batten was the son of Lucinda Creech and John Bunion Batten.Thanks cousin for your help - I may email you and send my fax number. I am seeking info on the parentage of Robert and Martha and thought maybe the Creech side of the family could help.And I have found it interesting how these two families married so often.Again - Thanks!
