                d.  George S Creed. Born ca 1851. Married Mary C Slefker on 21 Sep 1875 in Callaway Co.   In  1880 George S and his wife Mary C are listed as living in the Wilson Township of Audrain Co MO.

            James M Creed was a blacksmith and kept a blacksmith ledger. I was fortunate to examine the book.    It was a thrill to read a book so old and in such excellent shape, written in brown ink of those days.

            Its first entry, dated 1838, was for three days' work for J Griffin for $3.00.

            Another entry was dated 1847 for two big wheel whards for Augustin Creed.   The amount was $0.25.    That probably was the year Augustin Creed moved to Clinton Co MO. Augustin was James Madison Creed's uncle.

            Children of James and Mary Jane Wilson Creed:

                a.    John Wilkerson Creed.      Born 1 Dec 1840. Probably died in TX.
