Thank you, Cheryl. Your contributions will certainly help present and future KRIEGER-CREAGER & Variants researchers. Also, the sources are indeed invaluable for information. This will certainly save many of us from repetitive research and redundant searches already done by seasoned researchers, such as yourself. You are appreciated. ASH

Fellow KRIEGER-CREAGER-CREEGER & Variants Searchers,
"The following is from meticulously handwritten notes researched by a person who has since died, and I have received them through a CREEGER relative who somehow, luckily, came into possession of copies of the 167 pages.
The following is a verbatim rendition, but don't be afraid to contact me if you suspect a typo on my part or to double check a date or other data that conflicts with yours. I have already noticed a date that is one month different from what you have.
Occasionally I add a remark of my own which will be noted by the square brackets [ ] enclosing it. Also, note that anything in parentheses ( ) are not mine, but are part of the copy I'm working from." Cheryl Creeger

ADAM3 CREAGER
son of Johann Caspar2 Krieger and his wife, Anna Christina Hoffarth
b. ---,1737; d. Sept. 4, 1805

"ADAM CREAGER, was the fifth child born to [Johann] Caspar Krieger/Krüger/Creager and [Anna] Christinah Hoffarth/Hoffert/Hufford. He was born in 1737, between the months of May and September, in Frederick County, Maryland. Adam was confirmed on May 20, 1753, aged 15 years, according to records at the Falckner Swamp Lutheran Church." [ICL, p. 24]  Further research indicates that Adam actually was born in the area of Oley Mtns. (aka Oley Hills), Philadelphia County (now Berks Co.), Pennsylvania where the Johann Caspar Krieger/Creager family lived at the time. The family later removed to Frederick County, Maryland. Adam's name is written as Adam Krüger in some records and Adam Krieger/Crieger in others. ASH

Adam's father had written his will in 1763 and died June 1765 in Frederick County, Maryland. [Frederick Co., MD Will Book A, Folio 254] Johann Caspar left a considerable amount of property to his children...one being "Adam." On 26 October 1765, Jacob Rynhart paid £10 to the following sons and legatees of Caspar Creager: Christian, Valentine, Conrad, Adam, Michael, and George. Michael and George signed their surname as "Kreager." The other sons signed their surnames in German script.

Vol. K, p. 137 - dated [missing...CC], recorded Oct. 26, 1765
[EM, Translation of Records, p. 2: Land Records of Frederick County, Maryland]
[Note: It appears that at this time period, Adam and his siblings inherited land from their father's estate. ASH]

He married probably about 1765 to his first cousin, Christinia Hoffert, daughter of Christian Hoffarth/Hoffert/etc. and Elizabeth Keim. Christian was sister to Anna Christinah (Hoffarth/Hoffert/Hufford) Creager. [ASH]

Adam, a yeoman (farmer), purchased land via an indenture on 6 July 1772 from his brothers and sister, which had been inherited from their father, Johann Casper Krieger/Krüger/Creager. These indentures included the parcels known as Casper's Lot (30 acres), Creager's Lot (20 acres) Mount Pleasant (150 acres) Sandy Spring (250 acres), part of Resurvey on Rineharts Fist Choice (50 acres)


Vol. P, p. 493, dated July 6, 1772, recorded Dec. 2, 1772

Eventually Adam had sold some of the land back to some of them in a series of complex transactions. Part of it went to his brother, Conrad. Adam signed in script and Christina relinquished her dower's right. (Source: History of the CREAGER FAMILY of Ohio and Indiana, 20 Aug 1974, p. 4 from Miss Margaret E. MYERS, 317 East Third Street, Frederick, MD 21701)
