Johnathan Davis Creathbaum b. 08 Feb 1844 in WVA d. 27 Aug 1892 in NE son of ???

I’m seeking the parentage of Johnathan Davis CREATHBAUM who was born February 8, 1844 in Wheeling, Marshall County, Virginia. Today Wheeling is located in Marshall County, West Virginia.

What I need to prove Johnathan Davis CREATHBAUM's parentage is a deed or will recorded in either MARSHALL COUNTY, West Virginia or OHIO COUNTY, West Virginia or a deed or will recorded in Richhill Twp., Greene County, Pa. stating Johnathan Davis CREATHBAUM is the son of ....

The surname CREATHBAUM could be spelled numerous ways, it seems the census takers and records found in different court houses across the United States did not know how to spell the surname. The surname could be spelled, Creathbaum, Krichbaum, Creekbaum, Crickbaum, Krigbaum, Kriegbaum, Kreigbaum, Krieghbaum, Kreighbaum, etc. etc. This surname has been found spelled over 40 ways in the census and courthouses across America.

I have no proof but believe Johnathan Davis CREATHBAUM is the son of Elias CREATHBAUM b. 31 Mar 1819 in Richhill Twp., Greene Co., Pa. son of Philip CREEKBAUM and Sarah or Susanna (maidenname unknown). Philip CREEKBAUM was the son of the immigrant Johann Conrad KRICHBAUM and Anna Marie (maidenname unknown). When Conrad Krichbaum the immigrant first came to America, he lived in Pennsylvania before he moved to Maryland.

The only time I find Elias CREATHBAUM in the census is in the 1840 census where he’s enumerated in OHIO COUNTY, VIRGINIA. Today Ohio County is located in West Virginia. I do not have a date of death or place of death for Elias CREAHBAUM or his wife Susanna Kamp/Kemp/Camp.

Elias CREATHBAUM’s daughter Allie CREATHBAUM was living in Christian County, Illinois by the time of the 1870 census. Allie CREATHBAUM remained in Christian County, Illinois until her death in 1916. Allie CREATHBAUM married December 21, 1871 Christian County, Illinois to William BUGG.

Johnathan Davis CREATHBAUM married January 1, 1869 to Isabella Beck LAWTON and lived in Christian County, Illinois in the 1870 census and 1880 census, but by 1885, he and his family are enumerated in the 1885 census living in Saunders County, Nebraska.

I cannot find Johnathan Davis CREATHBAUM in the 1850 or 1860 census in Virginia or Illinois or any other state in the U.S. nor can I find Allie CREATHBAUM in the 1850 or 1860 census. I did find Allie CREATHBAUM in the 1870 census living in Christian County, Illinois.

If anyone lives or has access to courthouse records in OHIO County or MARSHALL County, WEST VIRGINIA or in Richhill Twp., GREENE County, PA, I’d appreciate a lookup for Elias CREATHBAUM to see if he has a will or there is a deed that proves the names of the children of Elias CREATHBAUM & his wife Susanna Kamp / Kemp / Camp.

The following descendant report is what I do know about Jonathan Davis Creathbaum and his children.
I've read all the census records you see listed in the report.
I also have the census readings for
Elias CREATHBAUM in 1840 in Ohio County, Virginia (now WVA)
and his father Philip CREEKBAUM in the following census:
Census 1: 1800, Georges Creek, Alleghany Co., MD
Census 2: 1810, Richhill Twp., Greene Co., PA
