Fred Creed, May 18, 1881 - July 16, 1944
Today I found the Los Angeles National Cemetery Record for Fred Creed, who was born on May 18, 1881 (I am guessing Illinois or Indiana) and died July 16, 1944.I am also assuming he passed away in California, as his uncle Willet Creed-my great grandfather (b.January 12, 1872, Illinois and d.February 13, 1948, California) signed the certificate and made the arrangements for burial.Fred Creed is listed as being with Co H. 3rd Regt USV Infantry as a private.He was born too late for the Spanish American War, so I am assuming his service was most likely for World War I. I am hoping one or more of you will know who his parents may be.If Willet Creed (married Mary Elizabeth Wachtel on May 14, 1892)is his uncle, then he must be the son of one of Willet's brothers.My guess would be that his father is Orlando (Nando) Creed and Violett McConnoha/McConnaha, (who were married in 1880) in Jasper, Illinois because of the date of Fred's birth. Jerome Creed is another possibility (married Rosaline Wise on August 12, 1885) but I believe Jerome & Rosie had 3 daughters--no sons. I can't seem to find Fred Creed's parents, and would very much appreciate any information any of the Creed cousins may have concerning his mother and father.
Thanks so much,
