Christian, Robt. CREAGER, etc. 1860 Hardin Co., KY
Posted by: Audrey Shields Hancock Date: February 07, 2002 at 04:28:15
  of 353

I believe that Christian Creager is from the Johann Casper/Caspar CREAGER/KRIEGER family of PA & MD...being descended from one Ernst Creager.

Can anyone share additional information concerning these families? Is the Thompson family somehow interrelated?

1860 Federal Census
Hardin County, KY
District 2, P. O. Elizabethtown
9 June 1860, p. 108
Cyrus ???, Asst. Marshall

Dwelling 161
Family 156

Christian Creager, 74, male, farmer, real estate property $5,000; personal
estate $400, b Maryland
John Creager 18, male, farmer, b KY

****************************

Dwelling 162
Family (# not given)

begins with:
Mary (under the above John Creager) age looks like 24, female, b KY
Family # is not given, appears to be enumerated with Christian Creager family

then under Mary:
Joe/Jo (difficult to read) D. Creager, male, 2, b KY
Mary E. 4/12 m., b KY

Now, it appears that Robert Creager below was enumerated with this family,
and according to
WorldConnect site:
http://worldconnect.rootsweb.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=ljcmarv&id=I24928
Robert appears to be the wife of one Mary Richardson.

From the census, I had the same feeling that Robert was connected with Mary and the 2 children before I saw the above WorldConnect site.

Either Robert was living, working, or visiting next door for some reason with the Thompson family.
