The "Creech Family History" gathered over the years and put  together by my uncle, James M. Creech. The researcher must  understand that his original document was not on a word  processor and was scanned to get this version. There are some  mistakes with dates, etc. resulting from this; but still should be  helpful with researchers. Ken Creech

PREFACE

This little history does not presume to be exhaustive nor complete in fact no history is ever complete. It simply attempts to shed a little light on a subject that will be of interest to only our family. The CREECH family is quiet an old one and dates back to 1204 AD in Scotland. The line most concerned with here though is Benjamin Creech, Sr. and his kin for he was the one that moved from Virginia to North Carolina married settled on a farm reared his family whose sons and grandsons became our ancestral grandparents. It was the unfinished family legend of Benjamin and his kin and his migration to old Johnston County N.C. that led to this research and writing. With each generation since Benjamin the details become fewer and fewer the old cemeteries become smaller and smaller and overgrown with trees briars and bushes. The family names are still the same but the little stories important only to our family which makes the history of any family lost a little at a time. The time has come for someone to record what is known to this point so that the CREECH descendants will know a little about their ancestral lines. Other ancestral lines in the same generation as Benjamin Creech Sr. are probably just as interesting but a constant thread through the generations from a log bin with a stick chimney in old Johnston County N.C. to the brick house with the modern conveniences of present day Greene County N.C. has witnessed the Life and death from Benjamin Creech Sr. to William Franklin Creech and led to the interest in their lives.
This history is written primarily for the cousins and all the children and ....grandchildren children of William Vicey and Maggie ("Papa Creech Mama Vicey and Mama Creech"). It is hoped that with each descendant's personal story added to the end this little book will serve as a family history for many generations to come.

INTRODUCTION
The members of the Creech family in general have always been an industrious people and as a rule are generous kind and mainly a sensible people. The average stature of the Creech male is a height of five feet 5 inches to five feet 10 inches; Not many exceed six feet and in weight they are medium in size; mostly from 150 to 190 pounds. Of course there are exceptions as to height and weight. The Creech female is mostly also on the medium size and height; not many are large and fat; but have a tentative to be on the slim or frail side. The Creech features are nearly all the same and are noted as having deep set blue eyes; light brown hair; light to fair complexion; do not gray fast but has thin hair; a few are ball but not pronounced as such. Members of the Creech family were bitter against slavery and in all of my research in the twenty years I have found where 1 Creech in Duplin County North Carolina had one slave. Also in all of my research I have found three black families bearing the name Creech; one in Lenoir County N.C.; one in the state of South Carolina; and one in the state of Louisiana. Why did the Creech family have no slaves? It was not because they could not afford them. Why Sion Sr. of Texas and Louisiana had over 200000 acres of land (Sion sold a slave in La. according to documents see later this book); Richard Creech of Barnwell South Carolina had a several thousand acre plantation; Joshua Creech Sr. of Johnston County North Carolina owned hundreds of acres; John Jonathan and Elijah Creech in Harlan County Ky. and Lee County Virginia had great amounts of land; Ezekiel and Benjamin Creech Jr. over in old Dobbs County North Carolina had so many land transactions that one may think them real estate dealers. Joshua and Ezekiel Creech along with Simon Creech in Duplin were large landowners. So it could not have been the wealth or land. It is with certainty that the Creech family did not own slaves because they at one time were slaves themselves. Having lived in Scotland (a few in England) were under the Britons and that is why they me to America; to escape slavery & persecution If you will note in this family history of the Creech family you will find as many of them as any other family that I have ever me across serving for the use; the independence of their country. Whether it was the Revolutionary War the Civil War or the World Wars; the Creech family served their country well. Also you note that a great many bore Biblical names. Benjamin Creech Sr. had 9 children and named 8 of them biblical names and one a family name. He raised 6 sons to manhood and all served in the Revolution.
Genealogy or getting a record of your family tree is a matter of tracing yourself back to your roots. "Fate makes relatives but choice makes friends." YOUR NAME - You got it from your father it was all he had to give so it's yours to use and cherish for as long as you may live. If you lose the watch he gave you it could always be replaced but a black mark on your name son n never be erased. It was clean the day you took it and a worthy name to bear when he got it from his father. There was no dishonor then - so make sure you guard it wisely after all is said and done you'll be glad the name is spotless when you give it to your son."
Every family ought to be blessed with someone who keeps names and relationships recorded. Some people may think it silly foolish stupid or just a waste of time to keep up with their family lineage. They need only to read from our Holy Bible Chronicles I. Here we see some of the oldest genealogy of time. Here we see Noah's family lineage back to Adam and on down to King David who went into the presence of the Lord and took his place there and said "What am I Lord God and what is my family that thou hast brought me thus far." It was so with the family of Israel and Judah. The Chronicler believed that it was important to keep a record of who was who. He recorded genealogies and traced certain vocational bloodlines to remind us that history is a personal affair. God's acts in history are set in personal terms real people with names. God wants us to keep up with our family trees and know who we are and whence we me.
The families of any history is like a coral reef it is not compiled by any one person but by many numerous individuals over the generations who have contributed information and data from time to time about their respective lines. I often heard the laughter and jokes from my friends and kinsmen when I often paused to read alone the simple messages on the tombs in the silent city of the dead. Here we find plenty of unmarked graves that at one time someone or loved one knew who was buried here but not any more. It seems so sad to know that as much as this person was loved at one time that they should or could be forgotten and not knowing who is buried in these silent graves. Gravestones are not made for the dead but for the living and the generations to come. Can we of a civilization that is supposed to be educated forget so easy the ones we love? Even the savage Indian of the New World had more re and compassion than this. As I have worked on this family history I have traveled the great highways and the unfrequented traveled roads of the backcountry districts. I have seen well kept cemeteries; cemeteries that have trees grown into large saw logs; cemeteries with the tombstones piles in a small section of the cemetery in the center getting smaller each year as the farmer needs that extra little land; cemeteries that have been plowed over and the stones used as ornaments of some type; cemeteries used as pig-pens and cow lots or bull-dozed away. I have seen life in every phase and viewed these members of our Creech family in many walks of life. This history has led me into many counties of North Carolina as well as many other states. These typical records in arrangement and phraseology expressing in most cases the simple faith of the Creech Family a people natured in the religious ideals and patriotism that n come only to the Scotch-Irish and English fore bearers.
The Creech family played a large part in the settlement of what now are Greene Lenoir Wayne Duplin Johnston Columbus Robeson and New Hanover counties of North Carolina and other states of South Carolina Georgia Alabama Louisiana Texas Virginia Tennessee Kentucky and others. They me mostly from southern Virginia and the motherland to a vast wildness where the Indians were still in their wigwams and had their campfires. They carved a living out of this great wildness and fought for a use they believed to be right; that all man should be free and independent. Some of the Creech family had large plantations and large acreage while others had small homesteads but each played his or her part well. They were from all occupations and professions but they mostly loved the soil and were farmers.
The men and women of this great Creech family me to America when it was so young left home ties far behind in order to make a new home for themselves and their children and grandchildren. They braved dangers, endured hardships, suffered the worst privations and lived under the most primitive conditions. Picture the humble daily life and habit of these ancestors and pioneers who first settled in old Johnston New Hanover Duplin and the Virginia counties; also the ones who went to the rugged mountains of Lee County Va. and Harlan County Ky.
In bins of rough-hewn timber they lived loved and worshipped the God of their father. He met the kindly speech the gentle love and affection of parents and the quiet thoughtful children lending helping hands to se the burdens of their elders. Like setting forth to discover and uncover a River of Doubt I the author began a score of years ago to assemble the endless task to compile this Creech family history. The task has been a long one and wearisome but the thought was uppermost in our most humble way to produce that will add to this land of ours giving to our fellow citizens and kinsmen a look that we hope will aid them in tracing their ancestors. It is with particular mingled emotion and memories that I now contemplate my endeavors to serve my Creech family in this undertaking. It is an honor and a privilege to be a meek descendant of this great family and to share in their ideals and undertakings. I say this with pride; so 1st it be known that this great family heritage shall not be forgotten.

Origin
From The Origin of English Place Names - By P. H. Reaney
Publishers - Routledge and Kegan Paul London. England
"The Celtic Element" - Certain of the most familiar English place-names were well known on the continent long before the first Saxon invaders set foot on these shores and must therefore be pre-English in origin.
"British Names of Hills and Woods" - Many surviving names of British origin were originally names of natural features of rivers hills and forests which had already been adopted by the Anglo-Saxons and were afterwards given to the villages which grew up in the neighborhood. Only exceptionally and in the parts settled later were they inhabited by Britons. Among the most common British or Primitive Welsh elements found in such names are: "late Brit 'crugo -'hill mound barrow" in CREECH (Dorsetshire Somerset) CRICH (Derbyshire) CROOK (Devonshire Dorsetshire) CRUTCH (Worcestershire) in compounds with British elements as EVERCREECH (Somerset) 'Yewt' PENKRIDGE (Staffordshire) Romano-British Pennocrucium "hill summit" and with Old English elements in Christon (Somerset) CRUCHESTON 1197 CRUCHFIELD (Berkshire) CREWKERNE (Somerset) "hill-house" and in the tautologil CHURCHILL (Somerset) (Worcestershire) and CRICHEL (Dorsetshire) with the addition of Old English hyll.
"Bilingual Britons and Monoglot Saxons" - During the Roman occupation the British population was nowhere completely exterminated though it survived more fully in some areas than in others. Brittonic was still spoken in Somerset and Dorset at the end of the seventh century for "CREECH BARROW HILL (Dorsetshire). The hill from which CREECH ST. MICHAEL took its name is described in a charter of 682 as "the hill which is called in the British language CRUCTAN but among us (i.e. the Saxons) CRYCBEORH.
From "The Surnames of Scotland" - By Black
"CREECH" - From CREICH in Fifeshire (a place-hill) where a family of this name rented land several generations. "The parish of CREICH in the northern part of Fifeshire contains the remains of an ancient castle but there is no trace of any family bearing the name occupying the lands" (Rogers The Book of Robert Burns I page 129. Douenalders (i.e. Donald) de CREYCH a cleric was one of the witnesses to a confirmation charter by Walter son of Alan of the land of Tubermor between 1204 and 1241 (Scon, Page 125) Simon de CREYCH who petitioned for a canonry of Moray 1394 (Papal Petitions I page 620) appears in 1403 as councilor of the Cearl of Atholl (CSR I page 180). Master Richard CRETCHE of Scotland who had a safe conduct into England in 1423 (Bain IV 935) is probably Richard de CREICH who was rector of the church of Croile (Crail) in the diocese of St. Andrew in 1429 (RMS II page 137) Andrew CREICH is recorded in Dunfermline in 1585. John CREYCH was a merchant in Leith 1544 (Rollok page 36) Issobella CREICH and Janeta CREICH were heirs portioners of Robert CREICH avus in a house in the burgh of Newburgh and regality of Lundoris in 1611. William CREECH (1745-1815) published the first Edinburgh edition of the "Poems of Burns". All these lived between 1204 and 1815. The name is also spelled CRAICH and CRAIGH.
Know Your Name - By J.C. Downing - The News & Observer May 8, 1966
This is a place name in both England and Scotland and is from the old British CRUC or Old Welsh CRUG meaning "hill". There are hamlets in Dorset and Somersetshire England by this name that were spelled CRIZ and CRIC in the Doomsday Book of 1086. There is a parish in Derbyshire by the same name.
Whether the following Englishmen once lived at either of these places or on a Hill will probably never be known: John Ate (at) CRECHE of Sussex Robert CRECHE of Suffolk. Peter De (of) CRYCE of Somersetshire and Robert De CRICHE of Nottingham all lived in 1326. Jane CREECH, died 1665, is buried in St. James Churchyard in London.

In searching for the CREECH CLAN in Scotland it was found that they were of Fifeshire and owed their allegiance to and gained protection by the MAC-DUFFS: thus many wore the MacDuff tartan.
"The MacDuffs were an important clan as early as the 12th century and claim descent from the Celtic Earl of Fife. According to tradition the first Earl was the MacDuff who helped to overthrow MacBeth and put Malcolm Canmore on the throne of Scotland. In return the MacDuff chiefs were given the right to enthrone the King of Scots at his coronation to lead Scotland's army and to seek sanctuary at the Cross of MacDuff near Newburgh."
Thomas CREECH (Krech) born 1659 died 1700. He was born at Blandford, Dorsetshire England and committed suicide in June 1700. He was an English writer, translator of Lucretuis (1682) and other classical authors.
William CREECH was born 1745 at Newbattle Midlothian Scotland on April 21st. He died at Edinburgh on Jan. 14 1815 and was a Scottish essayist and letter writer publisher of Burns Educated, Edinburgh University. He went into business with a Scottish printer, Alexander Kincaid, becoming after Kincaid's retirement in 1773, the head of the firm, which is noted as the first publisher of the works of Beattie, Blair, Cullen, and Gregory, Dugald, Stewart MacKenzie and of Burns with whom he later quarreled. Creech was lord provost of Edinburg from Oct. 1811 to Oct. 1813 and a fellow of the Royal Society and the Antiquarian Society. He is Absence of William CREECH, Publisher in 1787. His essays, contributed under his pseudonym to the Edinburg Courant, were published from 1791 to 1815 as Fugitive Pieces.
Members of the Creech family were in England and Scotland as early as 1197 and 1204 respectively. In searching for the CREECH CLAN in Scotland it was found that they were of Fifeshire and owed their allegiance to and gained protection by the MACDUFFS - thus many wore the MacDuff tartan.(see other pages)
Richard Creech the emigrant was the first of the name to come America. He left the Highlands of Scotland and sailed the Atlantic aboard the ship "Journeyman" with Captain William Carter in the year 1622. He arrived in the spring of 1623 with his wife and son Henry son Nicholas and baby girl. The Richard Creech family settled in the "Maine" which was at the time located in James City County Virginia. James City County is located north of Surry and Isle of Wight Counties in Virginia. On Feb. 16th 1623 Richard Crouch (Creech) was shown on the list of the living in the "Maine" in Virginia. Richard Creech married a lady by the name of Beale; her first name could have been Frances as son Henry named his only daughter this name which was very common in that day for a son to name a daughter after his mother and more so due to the circumstances. Richard's wife was the daughter of Robert Beale Sr. and wife Mary Belt the granddaughter of Daniel Belt and wife Elizabeth Bell (the daughter of Robert Bell). The will of Robert Bell was written Jan. 16, 1656 and proved Feb. 16, 1656. Bell was a citizen and skinner of London he was buried in Parish Church of St. John Baptist in London near his wife. As to the number of children Richard and Frances had is not known; as the story goes Richard Creech his wife and all his family except two sons Henry and Nicholas were killed by the Indians in one of their massacre raids 1630 along the James River. A good number of these early settlers were killed by the Indians and I guess Richard Creech and wife were no exceptions. The brother of Frances Beale Creech John Beale Sr. raised the two sons who were away from the house as the Indians struck down the family. As to Nicholas Creech not much is known about him. He was born about 1619 and was shown in Lower Norfolk County Virginia in the year 1640 age 21 years; so it is presumed he died at an early age in that county. Later Of Henry Creech.
Captain Henry Creech Sr. was born about 1621 in the Highlands of Scotland; he died in old Albemarle County North Carolina about the year 1709 at the age of 88 years old. The title Captain was given him as he was the Captain of a ship "Nancy" which sailed the Albemarle Sound and other points along the American coast. He came to America with his father and family in the year 1622 aboard the ship "Journeyman" with Captain William Carter as Captam. The family settled in "The Maine" in Va. where the Indians killed the family in the year 1630 while they were on one of their raids along the James River. Henry and Nicholas Creech escaped the massacre as they were away from the house at the time working in the fields. These two brothers were raised by the brother of their mother John Beale Sr. Henry Creech married about the year 1653. Joyce Paine born 1633 and died about 1712 was the daughter of Benjamin Paine of Lower Norfolk County Va. Henry bought 200 acres of land in Lower Norfolk County, Va. on April 20 1682 - escheated from John Lownes deceased. One must remember that up until 1663 old Albemarle County, N.C. was called Lower Norfolk County Va. which extended as far down as the location of New Bern. N.C. Henry Creech had settled on the northeast side of the Pasquotank River in old Albemarle County, N.C. on Areanoos Creek. Here he received a land grant of 490 acres of land on March 30, 1704 which was adjoining the lands of the Yawpins Indians Reservation of 10240 acres located on North River which the Indians received Oct. 2, 1704. North River is on the north side of Albemarle Sound opposite from Durant's Neck on the south side. Durant's Neck was the home of the famous George Durant who played an important part in the infant colony of Carolina. Henry Creech, Sr. was a Justice of Peace in the new colony from 1691 to 1698 and signed several documents bearing these dates. He wrote his will August 16, 1709 with his wife Joyce the Exec. To receive land grants or patents a person had to prove his rights with a warrant issued. In the year 1694 Henry Creech wife Joyce Benjamin Paine father-in-law Thomas Harrison (brother-in-law) and his wife Elizabeth and daughter Elizabeth Harrison proved their rights in Albemarle County, N.C. Henry Creech and wife Joyce had issue of: Henry Jr. Frances Thomas Sr. William and Richard Creech. (Of Richard Creech later).
First to America
Richard Creech was the first of the name to come to America. He left the Highlands of Scotland and arrived in Virginia before 1623. He was brought to America by Captain William Carter and settled in the "Maine" which was at the time located in James City County Virginia. James City County is north of Surry and Isle of Wight Counties in Virginia. On Feb. 16, 1623 Richard Crouch (Creech) was shown on the list of the living in Virginia In the "Maine" Richard Creech married a lady by the name of Beale the daughter of Robert Beale Sr. and wife Mary Belt the daughter of Daniel Belt and wife Elizabeth Bell who was the daughter of Robert Bell. The will of Robert Bell was written Jan. 16, 1656 and proved Feb.16, 1656; Bell was a citizen and skinner of London. He was buried in parish church of St. John Baptist London near his wife. As to how many children Richard Creech had we do not know but we do know that there were two sons. The story goes that Richard Creech and wife had three children. These children were born just before coming to America. It seems that Richard Creech his wife and one child a daughter were killed by Indians. The two young sons were away from the house at the time that their family was destroyed. It is a good guess that this story is true due to the fact that we see no more data on this Richard Creech anywhere. A good number of these early settlers were killed by the Indians and I guess Richard Creech and wife were no exceptions. The brother of Richard Creech's wife John Beale Sr. raised the two sons of his sister's and Richard Creech. These two sons were Henry Creech and Nicholas Creech.

Captain Henry Creech ( 1621- 1709)
Captain Henry Creech Sr. was born 1621 in the Highlands of Scotland. He died in old Albemarle County North Carolina about the year 1709 at the age of 88 years old. The Captain was given him as he was that Captain of a ship "Nancy" and the Nancy sailed the Albemarle Sound and other points along the American coast It is not known if she sailed the Atlantic. Henry Creech came to America with his father and family (mother, brother) in the year 1622 aboard the ship "Journeyman" the Captain was William Carter. His father Richard Creech his mother and small sister were killed by the Indians in one of their massacres on the settlements of the "Maine" in Virginia in 1630. His Uncle John Beale Sr. the brother of his mother raised him along with his brother Nicholas Creech. He married about the year 1653 Joyce Paine born 1633 died 1712 the daughter of Benjamin Paine of Lower Norfolk County Virginia. He bought 200 acres of land in Lower Norfolk County Va. on April 20 1642- escheated from John Lownes deceased. Henry Creech never left old Lower County Va. One must remember that at this time Lower Norfolk Co. Virginia was the very same territory that was to become Albemarle County, N.C. Lower Norfolk County Virginia extended down as far as New Bern N.C. He had settled on the northeast side of Pasquotank River in what was to become Albemarle County N.C. on Areanoos Creek. Here he received a land grant of 490 acres of Land on March 30, 1704 and this grant was adjoining the lands of the Yawpins Indian Reservation of 10,240 acres located on North River which was given to the Indians Oct. 2, 1704. North River is on the north side of Albemarle Sound opposite from Durant's Neck on the south side. Durant's Neck was the home of the famous George Durant who played an important part in the infant colony of Carolina. Henry Creech Sr. was a Justice of Peace in the new colony from 1691 to 1698 and signed several documents bearing these dates. He wrote his will August 16 1709 and Joyce his wife was the Executrix. His will was never probated or the record was destroyed. To receive land grants or patents a person had to get a warrant issued and have their rights proved. In the year 1694 Henry Creech, Joyce his wife Benjamin Pain Thomas Harrison Elizabeth his wife and Elizabeth Harrison their daughter proved their rights in Albemarle County N.C.

Richard married about the year 1691 to Tamer Eliza Davis and settled in Nansemond County, Virginia where the Rent Rolls in 1701 showed he had 200 acres of land in that county. Nansemond county was created from upper Norfolk County Virginia in the year 1637 and is just across the North Carolina-Virginia state line from Currituck County N.C. which was formed from Albemarle County N. C. in the year 1691 where Richard's father Henry Creech Sr. lived. Tamer Eliza Davis the wife of Richard was the daughter of Samuel Davis Sr. and wife Eliza Benton. Samuel Davis Sr. came to America August 20, 1662 with Captain Samuel Matthews and 59 others. Samuel Davis Sr. returned to England and came back to America on October 13, 1662 with his wife Eliza, son Samuel Davis Jr., infant daughter Tamer Eliza Davis, daughter Alice Davis, who married later a Mr. Billet. Daughter Sarah Davis who later married a Mr. Ward and a son John Davis. Also on this return trip to America the father-in-law of Samuel Davis Sr. John Benton with wife Joann children John Benton Jr. Isabel Benton Alice Benton and Abigail Benton came with him. Samuel Davis Sr. settled 15 miles up the Southward side of the Rappahannock River with 400 acres of land. He received another 950 acres in patent on the north side of Carolina River September 25, 1663 and in the Pasquotank Precinct 95 acres on Herring Creek Swamp January 1694. The will of Samuel Davis Sr. was petition by his son Samuel Davis Jr. March 11, 1718. Richard Creech Sr. died 1715 in Nansemond County Virginia without a will and his wife Tamer Eliza Davis Creech died April 3, 1719 after her husband. Tamer Creech was one of the witnesses to her father-in-law's will, Henry Creech in 1709. Richard and Tamer Creech had six children in order of: Charles, Samuel Davis, Joyce, Richard Jr., Elizabeth and William Creech. (Of Richard Creech later)
Richard Creech Jr., the son of Richard Creech Sr. and wife Tamer Eliza Davis was born about 1703 Nansemond County, Virginia. He died before 1782 in Norfolk County, Virginia where he left his will no date given. Richard married about 1723 Mary Etheridge the daughter of Levy Etheridge and granddaughter of Adam Etheridge and wife Elizabeth. The will of Elizabeth Etheridge - dated January 23, 1764 (her husband was Adam Etheridge who died in Norfolk County Virginia) mentions her granddaughter Mary Creech, grandson Thomas Bayshaw, son Levy Etheridge. Elizabeth had property on the north side of Tanner's Creek. The widow Mary Creech was shown on the state enumeration's of Norfolk County Virginia 1782-1785 with 3 whites and with 1 dwelling; she was also shown on the 1790 Federal Census for Norfolk County. It seems that she must have been some younger than her husband Richard or lived to be an old woman in her late 80's. Not much is known about Richard Creech Jr. or his land transactions maybe he had very little as the issue of Richard and Mary migrated to other parts of the country except son Henry; for this was the period of time that there was a heavy migration to the south and west with a few moving north. The issue of Richard and Mary were: Benjamin Sr., John Sr., Henry Richard 3rd, Mary Nancy and Elizabeth Creech. - (Benjamin Creech Sr. - Later).

Benjamin Creech Sr. (ca 1724 - ca 1770-1790)
Benjamin Creech Sr. was born about 1724 in Nansemond County, Virginia. the son of Richard Creech Jr. and Mary Etheridge. He married 1745 Mary Lewis born 28 Jan. 1724 the daughter of Thomas Lewis and Rebecca (Becky) Thomas the daughter of Samuel Thomas. Benjamin Sr. came to present day Lenoir County North Carolina in the year 1746. It is assumed that he came directly from Nansemond County Va. to old Johnston County N.C. He received several land grants in old Dobbs and Johnston Counties which later became present day Greene and Lenoir counties (see below) Most of this land was located on Wheat Swamp and Rainbow Run. The old home house of Benjamin Creech Sr. was located near the Greene-Lenoir County line on Rainbow Run off high way 91 between Snow Hill and Kinston. The house was made of logs with a stick and mud chimney and had dirt floors which had white sand on them that had been hauled from the Contentnea Creek banks. This house was handed down to Benjamin's son Ezekiel, then to his son John Creech, thence to his son Starkey Creech thence to his son Joesph John Creech. This house was standing until the year 1899 (My father, William Franklin Creech was born in this house) and the old Creech cemetery was near by, where he is buried without a marker. He died between 1770 and 1790. . He left all six sons a farm and most sold out and moved to other sections of the state and nation. Benjamin Creech, Sr. did much for the Independence of America as he had five sons to serve in the American Revolution and one other son to be killed by the Tories at the beginning or just before the war started. Benjamin Creech, Sr. had seven sons and two daughters. One son died an infant.

Benjamin Creech Sr. was born about 1724 in Nansemond County Virginia the son of Richard Creech Jr. and wife Mary Etheridge. In the years 1735-1756 the heavy migration to the Coastal Plain region of North Carolina accounted for the very rapid growth there. extending from 50 to 200 miles inland. Moving into the area the heavy migration from the areas of Isle of Wight, Surry, Nansemond and other counties of Virginia included the Scotch-Irish, Germans Welsh, English, French and others which run into the thousands. How did they come? - with horses oxen, wagons and cattle, walking, they made their trek into what was to become Greene, Lenoir and Wayne counties of North Carolina. Benjamin Creech Sr. and his brother Richard Creech was no exception for they had joined a wagon train to the south just how many families or who they were is not known; but actual they were headed for the region around the Lower Cape Fear Valley where many friends, neighbors and family had already settled. The time of year was winter; the snow and cold rainy weather had made them bear east instead of taking the famous "The Philadelphia Wagon Road" which began at Schuylkill River Ferry opposite Philadelphia and ending near Salisbury, North Carolina. As they passed the territory of old Johnston County, North Carolina (later to become old Dobbs Co.) Benjamin a young man of about 22 years old and here he fell in love with a young lady by the name of Mary Lewis born January 28, 1724 and married her in the year 1746 in the spring. It was a very short courtship, it seems that Benjamin could not talk Mary into leaving with him to continue on to the Lower Cape Fear region but instead she persuaded Benjamin to stay near her family. Brother Richard continued on to New Hanover County, North Carolina where he stayed until after the American Revolution then moved on to present day Barnwell Co, South Carolina. Mary Lewis was the daughter of Thomas Lewis and Rebecca (Becky) Thomas (daughter of Samuel Thomas). After the marriage of Benjamin and Mary Thomas, Lewis gave them a parcel of land 200 acres in 1747; here on this land Benjamin and Mary built a log house with a stick chimney, dirt floors which had sand on them that had been hauled from the Great Contentnea Creek banks. Here in this houses Benjamin and Mary had 9 children of which 8 reached man or womanhood. This house was handed down to their son Ezekiel then to his son John thence to his son Starkey thence to his son Joseph John Creech, who was killed in the Civil War, fighting for the Confederacy. This house stood until the year 1899 (my father William Franklin Creech was born in this house) The old Creech cemetery is nearby this home house of Benjamin Creech - So it is presumed that Benjamin Creech Sr. came directly from Nansemond County, Virginia to what was to become old Dobbs County North Carolina (now Lenoir and Greene counties) where he built a land empire on Rainbow Run and Wheat Swamp. Here he received land grants in 1770, 1768, and 1771; and another, no date given, probably earlier than the others. He died before 1780 as he was not shown on that years tax list and is buried near the old home site without a marker along with his wife, son John, son Lewis and daughter Mary Nancy Creech. These graves had markers until about the year 1932 when an old man asked the owner to clean up the cemetery (was during the great depression period) so he could make some money to get his family something to eat. The owner agreed to let him clean up the cemetery, but to his surprise when checked, found that the old man had removed all markers and had thrown them in a wash on Rainbow Run. (This story was told to me by Mr. Willie Sugg, who later owned the farm and stated he had seen the markers). Benjamin Sr. and Mary Lewis Creech did much for their country and its independence, as they had five sons to Serve in the American Revolution and one other son to be killed by the Tories at the beginning or just before the war started. They left each son a farm in old Dobbs County, N.C, but son Richard sold out and went to Cumberland County , N.C.; Mary never married; Simon sold out and moved to Duplin Co, N.C; Benjamin Jr. stayed in Lenoir; Rebecca no data; Joshua went to present day Johnston Co.; N.C.; Ezekiel stayed in Lenoir Co.; John Sr. stayed but died about 1783- his widow and sons went to Lee Co. Va. & Harlan Co, Ky.; son Lewis died young;

He was shown on the 1769 and 1780 tax list from Dobbs County; also on the 1790 and 1820 federal census of Dobbs and Lenoir Counties. One strange thing about the descendants of Benjamin Creech, Jr. was that nearly all of them left Lenoir County for other parts of the state and country. By 1850 very few were left in the county of Lenoir. Benjamin Creech Jr. was paid for war services in 1776 from N.C.

Note: There has been a lot of Creech family history, that states that Joshua Creech Sr. had a son by the name of Noah Creech. He was not shown on Joshua's will or there is no record of any deed anywhere that Joshua Sr. gave Noah Creech any property whatso- ever. The onlv Creech connection was that Noah Sr. was a nephew of the Joshua Sr. and his brother Benjamin III married a dau. of Joshua Sr. Also Noah Jr. married Elizabeth Creech a dau. of Stephen Creech. We see some deeds that bear out these facts. There were enough connections that Noah Creech Sr. moved from Lenoir County, N.C. to Johnston County about the year 1826.
