ARTHUR AMMON7 CREAGER, eldest son of William Henry6 CREAGER (Emanuel5, Christian4, Adam3 Creager, Johann Casper2 Krieger/Creager, Hans Ernst1 Krieger) and Lydia Conoria WILES, was born 10 April 1874 Farmersville, Montgomery County, Ohio. "While a young lad, his family moved to the West Alexandria vicinity" of Preble County, Ohio. He attended school and graduated from West Alexandria High School in 1894 being among the five graduates. "Art was always known for his sense of humor and the ability to express himself in a comical and witty manner." Although small in stature, he was able to extend his voice, so as a young man he and three friends formed the "Sterling Quartet" in which he sang first tenor. The quartet was popular, singing at many social events in the surrounding areas. He married 24 January 1895 to Phoebe Augusta DIEFENBAUGH. Arthur and his family lived at the corner of Maple and McKinley Streets in Brookville, Ohio. He was a barber by trade and had his own barber shop in Brookville until his barber shop and other businesses were destroyed by fire. He then moved to West Alexandria where he again established another barber shop. Every Sunday morning for a number of years, he visited his brother, Edward, on the farm. Arthur died 30 December 1942 in West Alexandria, Preble County, Ohio. Phoebe was born 2 September 1876; died 15 May 1946.
