Re: Creef Family info
I don't have much information to offer you on William & Suzanner. James Brent was named guardian of Samuel & Issac (Mon)Creef during the March term of 1792.Lydia Creef was named as wife in the will of Thomas Moncreef dated 28 Feb. 1793. He left a son John, daughters Liddy & Jullen & wife Liddy. It was witnessed by John Brent, friend. Lydia's will of 26 Mar.1795 list daughters
Esther Fletcher & Julia & Lydia (both under l6)a son John (under 16).I think your William & Lydia's husband Thomas are related.
Thomas is found in NC as early as 1723.William is found listed on a Muster List under the command of John Woodhouse in 1758.
William is also listed in the taxtable of Currituck Co. in 1779.Thomas, William & William Jr. are all listed as heads of households in Currituck Co. in 1790.
In the will of John Moncrief dated 22 June 1712 it mentions sons Thomas, William,John & George & a daughter Mary. Unfortunately the names are all common & people had a habit of using them over & over again without the benefit of distinguishing one from another.
I don't know if I have rambled on....or if I have given you something you did not have....at any rate, I'm glad you are researching the Creefs.Would love to hear from you and about the lineage of Samuel & Issac........You can email me @[email protected] forward to hear from you........Judy
