I am searching for the record of my probable 4th-gr. grandfather, STEPHEN CREECH, who apparently came to Lee Co. from Ashe Co., NC in about 1800. Known probable children of Stephen Creech include my 3rd-gr. grandfather, ELIJAH CREECH, John Creech (Sr.), Jonathan Creech and possibly, Celia Creech, who married Samuel JONES. In subsequent years, members of this family seem to have moved back and forth between Lee Co. and Harlan Co., KY. My 2nd gr. grandfather, Stephen Nelson Creech (wherever did the "Nelson" come from?) ended up in Hawkins Co., TN, where he died.
My own research to date (based on a preponderance of the evidence), supports the conclusions of the late (and sadly lamented!) Marsil Creech and Bill Carroll that "STEPHEN CREECH WAS (THE) FATHER OF THE LEE-HARLAN CREECHES."
