I am looking for information on a JAMES FRANKLIN CREEL. A newpaper report (Arriba Record) of his death dated May 28, 1920 states that he was born in Culpeper Court House Virginia May 29, 1831. It goes on to say that he went to Betonsport Vanburen Co. Iowa in 1854 and married a LUCY FANCY NEWLON on Aug. 28, 1856. I have located a marriage on that date listing a SAMUEL F. CRELL & LUCY P. NEWLON, which is very confusing to me. The artical goes on to state that one son CHARLES ALLISON CREEL was born at Bentonsport Iowa Oct. 7, 1857. James moved to Afton Iowa in 1859 entered into the mercantile business as manager for Howe & Richards. While living in Afton they had 5 children, ALBERT BEECHER CREEL, died in infancy, FRANK ELLSWORTH CREEL, who died in Denver CO. in 1894 on his 32nd birthday, SETH WILLARD CREEL a resident of San Francisco, JAMES CLEON CREEL resident of Parsons Kansas, and CARRIE AMELIA CREEL, who died in Afton March 1896. The CHARLES ALLISON CREEL that I am following ended up in Arriba Colorado married to a ELIZABETH A. MUMFORD sister to my great grandmother FANNIE E. MUMFORD FLETCHER. I do have more info on the CREELS of Colorado and will share. Thanks for your help. G.
