        There is simply no direct tie  that I can find for sure that ties the Creeds to the Tanners of my direct lineage.  There has to be a tie someplace or so many would not have been Creed.

        The Southside Virginia (Vol 7, No. 4, Oct  1989) had an interesting article entitled The Thweatt Family by C T Smith, Jr MD. The Haskins that are listed are probably descendants of Martha Tanner (b 1665 Henrico Co VA) and Edward Haskins married Oct 1689.

         I would like to hear from anyone who might have information that would link these families to the Creeds.

Husband:   Richard Kidder Meade (17840-4 Mar 1832) of "The Grove," Brunswick Co.  He was one of  two sons of Andrew Meade and Susannah (Stith) Meade.

Wife:  Mary Martin Thweatt (James, John, James) (1780-10 Mar 1858).

Married:  10 Feb 1799.

Children:  The list of their children was given to Henry J Peet, editor of The Chaumiere Papers, 1883, by their granddaughter India Meade Platt.  Brunswick Co marriage bonds and other records have been added to the listing.  According to India Platt, her grandparents had 20 children; 12 reached maturity.

Mary Thweatt Meade survived her husband.  Her willl, dated 10 Feb 1853, was probated in 1858 in Dinwiddie Co. The will mentions sons John A and Richard K Meade, daughters Amelia Goodwyn, Maria Grammer, Susan Haskins, Harriet Randolph and Marietta Friend, granddaughters Mary Matilda Meade and Mary Bettie Goodwyn.

Mary and  R K Meade were buried at "The Grove" in Brunswick.
