Nor do I know when Allen Creed, the father of all these children, died. He was living in Jan and Feb 1864, when a military census was taken. And his property, which he had mortgaged, was sold 2 Apr 1867. He may or may not have been living then; the records do not say.
Lorene also told me two other things that Aunt Beanie said. Grandma told her: (1) that Grandma's father's name was "David" and (2) Grandma's mother's name was "Scott" before she married. I have put "David" In as a third name among those signing a petition requesting their for Hiram Allen Creed, even though it does not appear in the printed records. Grandma herself had three names; the brother David Solomon B also had three; and the sister Nancy Anna E had names. It is not unreasonable to think that the father of these three might also have had three names. (But could Aunt Beanie have been thinking of the brother David?) Since SC marriages were not recorded in the 1830s, I have not been able to find the record of Grandma Boyett's parents' marriage. One of these days we may find a deed or something which will say for certain, but no matter. I believe that "Scott" was Grandma Boyett's mother's maiden name
Additional Information on this line of Creeds will be included in the December 1987 issue.
