            Mr. Woodrow Boyett shared a letter that he had received from Professor Howard Creed of Birmingham Southern College. This seems to relate to the same Captain Ewing Creed mentioned on page 5 of this issue. Professor Creed wrote Mr. Boyette on 25 Jun 1982:

            "I've been told that my great grandfather. James Madison Creed, who was born in KY, had a blacksmith shop on the banks of the MS River in Callaway Co, MO. He and his wife, Molvina Hill of VA, were friends of a riverboat captain, Captain Joshua Ewing; they named my grandfather for him: Captain Ewing Creed.  My grandfather signed his name "C. E. Creed," but he was called "Cap" all of his life, which was spent for the most part on a farm in Randolph County; so did I, in Moberly MO midway between St. Louis and Kansas City."
