I feel quite certain that the Meshack to which you refer is the son of Micajah Creed.Micajah was living in Harris Co GA in 1850 and was in Bradley Co Ark. in 1860.Meshack is listed as five years old abd born in GA in the 1860 census, and is age 14 in the 1870 census.In the 1880 census he is listed in Clay Twp, Bradley Co Ark age 22, wife Mary A age 20 and child Corer? age seven months.
My notes indicate that Meshack died 24 July 1935 (where?) and that he resided in Faulkner Co Ark.
I have also noted that Meshack Creed married Mary Ann Langston 23 Dec 1878 in Bradley Co Ark.
I would enjoy receiving any additional information on this family for my notes.
