Its me again.
This time I need help on E.John Creech or John E. Creech who married
Darthalu Collier. She may have been using the name Creech. B. ca 1864
in Lee Co VA. She was step daughter of my old Benjamin Franklin aka
Frank Creech. Migrated to Wolfe Co between 1881-1890.
Recent info says she already had two daughters-Alice and Margie-
when she married E. John or John E. Creech.
Know Darathlu was alive in 1923 in Wolfe Co. Found some
guardianship papers where she and son Hobart Creech were appointed
guardians of E. John and then later guardians of some Patton children.
Have been told that the Patton children were her grandchildren.
Believe E.John might be son of Ira Creech of Wise/Lee Co VA.
Suppose to have had a half brother named Henry that lived with them
off and on. Also a sister Sarah. Don't know if she is half or not.
If Ira is father of E.John, then my old Benjamin Franklin and E.
John are first cousins.
Anyone have any help on Darathalu's first marriage or relationship?
Any help on E.John Creech?
Darathalu's mother was Valera Collier-I don't know if she migrated
to Wolfe Co with the family or not. Does anyone know if she is buried
in Wolfe Co?

Thought since I had shared my El Nino winter and weather with the
Wolfe Co List would only be fair to share sping also.
Spring has sprung. It slipped across the border at Fort Bliss, TX
sometime this week-end. It is making its way up the Rio Grande and
spreading out of the Land of Enchantment. Should make its way to
Yankee land soon.

Okay, lets liven up the Wolfe Co List.
I am still having problems with my Creechures.
Benjamin Franklin aka Frank Creech b. ca 1850 VA; married ca 1869 in
Lee Co VA to Valera COLLIER.
William Patton Creech b. Nov. 1969 Lee Co VA
John M. Creech b. 1872 Lee Co VA
Louisa B. Creech b. 1874 Lee Co VA
Clem Creech b. 1877 Lee Co VA-female
Sarah L. Creech b. 1880 Lee Co VA
Authur C. Creech b. 1881 Lee Co VA
Old BEn moved to Wolfe Co kY sometime after the 1880 census and
before the missing 1890 census. His son Wm. Patton married Nancy
Alice Cox d/o Fielden Cox and Martha Catron in 1890 in Wolfe Co. They
lived at Toliver, KY where 5 of their children were born. The 6th
child,Fielden Creech, was b. in Indian Terr.
The obit of Wm. Patton Creech dated 1923 states his father Benjamin
Franklin Creech is still alive in Wolfe Co KY.
The 1910 Indian Terr census shows old Ben living near Wm. Patton;
Ben has a new wife, Caroline b. KY. He is not on the 1920 OK census.
I don't know if Valera Collier, the first wife, came to Wolfe Co KY
or not. I have not been able to find a trace of her in VA or KY.
Altho some of her nephews and a brother were in Wolfe Co ky. Valera
had been married previously to a Lewis Collier and had 2 children-
Lewis Collier and Darathalu Collier. Darathalu married John E. Creech
apparently in Wolfe Co kY. I have found her on census records in
Wolfe Co. I do not know which John E. Creech this is.
I do not know Caroline's maiden name. There is a lot I don't know,
Also seems reasonable to me that Ben's daughters by Valera Collier,
Louisa, Clem, and Sarah L. would have married in Wolfe Co KY. I have
not been able to trace these daughters.
Ben and Valera's sons married into the Cox line. Wm. married Nancy
Alice; John M. married Nettie B.' Authur C. Creech married in KS, I
Also believe that after the death of Wm. Patton and Nettie B. Cox
Creech, that John M. and Arthur moved back to Wolfe Co kY. I have
found marriage records for their children in Wolfe Co.
Old Ben is not to be found in the 1920 Wolfe Co census. Also can not
find him in the 1900 Wolfe Co census. 1910 he is in Indian Terr with
I am stumped! Where do I go from here to there? Old Ben does not
appear anywhere in KY census records for 1920 or 1900. I have double
check the OK and Indian Terr census records and he is not there
Except for the alien abduction theory, does anyone have any ideas?
