My information on Elijah Creed Sr and his decendants until the time the line crosses with Robinson in 1872 has been gathered by other members of the Rucker family.In some cases I believe these to be well documented sources and others I am not certain of but except for a few dates they do contain the same basic information.Not that dates aren't important but in most cases it is a matter of one or two years off.The names and spouses are the same.Elijah Creed Sr m Mary Rucker 1776 Orange Co,Va. children were Augustine m Ransemon Cowhard (Bedford Co,KY), Elijah Jr (my line) m Elizabeth Beasley (Woodford Co,KY), Margaret m Mathew Creed (Woodford Co,KY), Nancy m David C Creed (Woodford Co,KY) and Elizabeth m John W Lynch (Henry Co,KY).The book "Marriages--Kentucky to 1850" shows the Elijah Jr, Elizabeth, Margaret & Nancy marriages. Kentucky Militia list 1786 gives Elijah Creed and James Rucker names next to each other (James was a half brother to Mary) The 1790 Kentucky Federal Census (reconstruced from county tax rolls after a fire destroyed the orignals). Elijah Creed Jr & Mary Taylor had 8 children Wilkerson Lemuel Creed m Clarissa Marie Finks their daughter Sarah Elizabeth Creed m Richard Lusk Robinson their son Benjamin Wilkerson m Bertie Alice Smith their son Charles Richard Robinson was my Grandfather. Documents (birth certificates, death certificates, census records, marriage records etc) back to Richard & Sarah Elizabeth & his parents Benjamin & Mariah Robinson.Elijah Sr died in either Ralls or Monroe Co, Mo 1829 Mary Rucker died same county 1827.I have not yet searched the census records to attempt to pinpoint the date they went to Missouri. My Creed, Rucker, Robinson family were from Monroe, Ralls, Boone, Audrain and Callaway Co's, MO.I have just ordered a copy of a book "Rucker Heritage" researched and then published by Alice Rucker Allen in 1993. This book traces Mary Ruckers family back to Peter (her great grandfather) who came from Germany in 1690.I also had assumed Bennett, Matthew and Elijah were brothers and that Margaret and Nancy both married cousins but couldn't prove the connection.
