       unmarried, age 24, living in Darlin's household with their father James,  age 68, a
       blacksmith.   Allen Creed was also a blacksmith.

    1830 Census of Orange District SC
    James Creed's household
    2 males 5-10; 1 male 10-15, 1 male 15-20, 1 male 40-50, 1 female 10-15, 1 female
    30-40.

    The four males in age from 5 to 20 are surely Daniel, Allen, Darlin, and Jacob; the female,
    Margaret, although the age of  Margaret (44) in 1850 does not agree with the  age of the
    unnamed female in James Creed's household in 1830.  Nevertheless, the fact that the three
    youngest children of Margaret Barton  are in Darlin Creed's household indicate a
    relationship and suggests that the parents probably had died and that they had come to live
    with their uncle, who was fairly well off and able to care for them.

    Jake Creed is listed as a Private in the "Muster Roll of Co H, 50th GA Reg., CSA.
    (History of Colquitt County, p. 31). He was killed 27 Aug 1864 in VA. According to
    Marriage Book E, p. 57, Thomas   County, on 25 Jan 1852 Jacob Creed married Rhoda
    Anna Jane Gandy.  Darlin Creed, J.P.,  brother of Jacob, performed the ceremony. Rhoda
    must have died before 1860, since Jacob appears here with brother Darlin just as in 1850.
    Darlin Creed   is listed as 3d Sgt in the Muster Roll of Co H, Ilth Regiment, GA State
    Guards Cavalry, CSA, Colquitt Co  GA. Mustered 4 Aug 1863.

    Darlin's son James A, age 8-12 in 1860, is James Ansel Creed, who married Mary M
    Carter in Berrien Co GA, 29 Feb 1880. Ansel Creed is the grandfather of Edward Creed
    of  Lakeland GA, whose wife Annie wrote me the letter mentioned in Note 1.  Judge John
    P Webb Sr, Probate Judge of Berrien Co, Nashville, GA, sent me Edward's name and
    address.

    Darlin Creed was very prominent in the political life of Colquitt Co.  He was  elected to the
    Colquitt Co Board of Education for the May 1874 term (for four years).  He removed
    from the county and his successor took over Mar 1875.  He had been sheriff 10 Feb 1858
    to 10 Jan 1860; tax collector 10 Jan 1860 to Mar 1866 (four terms); also Tax Receiver
    1 Mar 1862 to 16 Feb 1864.  He is also credited with suggesting  changing the name of
    the county seat of Colquitt Co from "Ocklockney" to "Moultrie."
