He married Mary Grimsley born 1812 a twin. in Greene County in the Speights Bridge Township. She was the daughter of Jethrow Grimsley and wife Lydia. Mary died after 1870 near Jason. She was living at the time with her daughter Nancy Jane Creech Sugg. She is buried with her husband. Starky and Mary made their home on Rainbow Run on the farm that his father John gave him in the year 1838. Here is where he raised his family and died. This house is still standing (2000 in bad shape) which was a one and one-half story house. His son Christopher made his home here in later years. This house is owned at present by Eugene Hardy, a great grandson of Starky Creech. If Starky Creech became a large land owner, it is not known; he owned small acreage in this section of Greene County.

Christopher Columbus Creech (l842 - l92l)
Christopher Columbus Creech was born August 15, 1842 on Rainbow Run in Hookerton Township in Greene County, N.C. By trade he was a farmer, brick mason and carpenter. He served the entire time of the Civil War with the 3rd North Carolina Regiment, Company A. He was the son of Starky Creech and Mary Grimsley. He married first Louvenia Forrest born September 22 1849, died August 10, 1911, the daughter of William Forrest Jr. and wife Elizabeth Dixon. He married second Martha Patricia Forrest Peaton, widow of John Peaton and sister to his first wife. There was no issue by his second wife. Christopher C. Creech died October 20, 1921 on the farm that he inherited from his father on Rainbow Run in Greene County. He is buried on this farm with his wife, infant son John, with a stone marker at his grave.

When Greene County called her sons to arms in May 1861 to fight for what she thought was a just cause, Cris (as I will call him) and his brother Joseph John Creech enlisted in Company A, Third North Carolina Regiment. There was 125 original soldiers and later the number increased to 168. These soldiers marched to Goldsboro to wait the arrival of Burnside, but was sent onto New Bern. where they remained for a month of intensive drilling. Then they were transferred back to Goldsboro to wait again for the expected advance of Burnside. This attack did not come, so the company was sent to Richmond Va. where they arrived on the battlefield of Seven Pines, just after a battle had been fought, (Joseph John Creech, brother to Cris, had been transferred to the F Company, 140th Regiment) The company of Cris's, made camp seven miles from Richmond for the purpose of picket duty. (the two Aldridge brothers, Thomas & James were in this company & were killed)

In the year 1862, Company A was engaged in some of the most severe and hardest battles of the war. The battles in which Cris Creech took part was Ellyson's Mill, Gettysburg, Cold Harbor, Sharpsburg, Chancellorsville, Richmond. Winchester, Malvern Hill, Payne's Farm and The Seven Day Battle around Richmond. The number killed in battle from Greene County outnumbered that of any other regiment. One account is given that the ammunition gave out when they were just at the point of defeating the enemy. The Third N.C. Regiment reached Appomattox Courthouse on Saturday, April 8, 1865. Most of the original soldiers had been left behind on battle grounds. The wounded were numerous. The flag that they had so proudly waved on the morning of May, 1861, when the soldiers departed the old popular tree at Snow Hill, was torn by bullets, ragged and was bloodstained. They were next ordered to open the road to Lynchburg, which was occupied by the enemy. They were charged by the cavalry, supported by the infantry. The battery was captured and many of the Greene County men were taken prisoners and killed. The Greene County men was led by Gen. W. R. Cox and the last shots that were fired in northern Virginia were fired by the regiment containing many North Carolina men, The company was defeated, taken prisoners and before they left the valley they received the news that Lee had surrendered. The records show that of the original 125 men who left Snow Hill in May 1861, 11 were captured, 34 were killed, 26 died of wounds and only 40 returned after the war.
Of these 40 who returned Christopher Columbus Creech was one of them, without a scratch on him. He was one of the men that escaped after the Lynchburg Road and fled back to N.C. hiding and walking the long way as best he could. When he arrived at Kinston, the Yankees had already burned the bridge over the Neuse River and had captured Kinston. He had to swim the river and as he did a small group of Yankees spotted him and tried to cut him off. He came out of the river on the north side and hid in a field grown up with broom straw side of the road. As he hid there, two Yankees rode up on their horses looking for him. One of them said. "Give me a match and we will burn the rebel out and see him run like a rabbit." the other didn' t have a match either, so the first Yankee said. "1st him go then as he is too scared to do any more fighting anyway".
After the two Yankees left, Cris returned to his father' s farm and home, located near Rainbow Church, just over in Greene County and a few miles from Kinston, N.C. He spent the night with his family and the following morning he left to find his company and comrades, not knowing that most of his company had been captured or killed up in Virginia, when he escaped. So he left walking towards Goldsboro, as the Confederate Army had retreated that way. When he arrived at Smithfield. he met the road full of Confederate soldiers coming back and told him that the war was over and that Lee had surrendered. The men he met were wounded. ragged. and a weary looking bunch of men that had fought a very brave and gallant fight but had lost to a more larger and more better equipped army.

Christopher Columbus Creech (1842 -1921)

My father, the grandson of Christopher C. Creech, was William Franklin Creech, who knew Cris very well and as a small boy, spent many days and nights with him after his first wife died. During these long nights, he would sit by the fire place, take his little toddy and tell his eldest grandson of his experiences while he was serving with Lee and Jackson in the bloody Civil War.
He told of one instant when they were camped around Richmond. Va. one night with no food to eat; Cris told the officer in charge if he would give him permission to leave camp, he would get them something to eat. The officer told him that no permission would be given, but if he just disappeared he could not help it, so Cris slipped out of camp and in a short period of time Cris was back with a milk cow. He never did say how he came by the cow, but the hungry gray coats had beef that night. He said that the men were so hungry that they could not wait for the meat to get cooked done, so ate it with bloody water running down their arms.
Also another instant, they were marching through some farming land in southern
Virginia, in which there was corn planted and was in the green roasting ear stage and the men ran to the field. pulled the com. ate it raw and as a result many were taken with the dysentery so bad that their end intestine came out at least a foot long. Many died from this as they marched along the roads of Virginia. There were many other things he told about such as robbing the dead of their shoes, so that they would not have to walk in the snow, frost or hard frozen ground barefoot. Many had rags tied on their feet, but they soon came off or wore out. Many suffered from frost bitten feet which caused the loss of toes, one foot or sometimes both feet. There were other things he told that is too terrible to put into print.
Many other things he told agrees in accord with the writings of the 125 men in Company A, Third Regiment of North Carolina. Cris Creech always spoke highly of General Stonewall Jackson and said that he was a much better General than Robert E, Lee. It is said Cris Creech hated the "Yankees" as much as any man known. He always called them "Dam Yankees", as long as he lived.

Benjamin Franklin Creech (1872-1932)
Benjamin Franklin Creech was born April 30, 1872 in the Hookerton Township on Rainbow Run. He was a farmer and like his father a brick mason and carpenter. He was called "Frank Creech" and has lots of grandsons and great grandsons bearing this name for him. He was a very mild and good natured man with a good sense of humor and like to keep all around him in good spirits. He inherited this nature from his father. Now Frank Creech seem to have a roving way about him as he moved about a lot. He sold the farm his father and aunt left him and bought other land in Greene County, then sold it and bought land in Wayne County; then lost this during the great 1930 depression. He moved about in Greene and Lenoir Counties farming, laying brick and doing carpenter work. He married in 1891 Joanna Sugg born Jan. 24, 1871 died Jan. 15, 1953, the daughter of Joshua Parrott Sugg and 1st wife Harriett McIntyre. He was living in Kinston, N.C. when he died of cancer April 21, 1932. He is buried at the Mewborn Family Cemetery near Jason in Greene County along with his wife. There are stone markers at their graves.
William Franklin Creech (1894-19 73)
William Franklin Creech was born in Hookerton Township on Rainbow Run, Greene
County, N.C. April 23, 1894. He married the first time April 20, 1914, Vicey Pauline Mewborn born Oct. 16, 1893 died June 26, 1925 the daughter of Joshua Parrott Newborn and Ida Varina Wooten. He married 2nd Jan. 2, 1927 Mary Magaline Hinnant born June 11, 1908, the daughter of Joseph L. Hinnant and Winnie Harrison. William Franklin Creech was a farmer by trade and acquired large land holdings in Greene and Wilson Counties, N. C. He lived in the Jason Township of Greene County. You might say that William Franklin Creech was a self made man, a good father and husband. He married two of the best women a man could want. When he died, he left his 11 children a good size farm each with all taxes paid. He was a lover of the soil and his fellow man. He is buried at the Mewborn Family Cemetery along with his first wife. There is room for his 2nd wife to be buried also beside him. See the poem he wrote on another page. ( His 2nd wife, Maggie, died at noon on Jan. 26, 2000 several of her children were at her side. One of the largest snow storms ever occurring in Greene Co. had happened just a dew days prior to her death.)
James Milton Creech ( 1920 - 1983 )
James Milton Creech was born August 20, 1920 on his father's farm in Greene County, N. C. in the Jason Township. He married June 14, 1941 Hester Mary Pelt born Jan. 16, 1925, the daughter of Robert Monroe Pelt and Hattie Essie Garris of Wayne County, N.C. By trade James M. Creech was a tobacco auctioneer and farmer. After his marriage he moved to the Shine Township of Greene County. He served as Greene County Commissioner for two terms and in 1979 wrote a History of Greene County, N. C. which was the first detailed history of the county to be written.
James M. Creech (1920-1983)-
Poem written 1974
"My County"
High on a hill I stood, a century it seemed;
and viewed my county of Greene;
There the rural land was around and
the busy city noise was not found;
I felt the green earth firm 'neath my feet,
where the wild flowers grew mild-mannered and sweet;
And thought how so many years ago,
God called all matter into life, "He spoke and it was so";
I lifted my eyes to the belfry of the sky,
and through the blue-white patched clouds,
I watched the wild birds fly; I saw the lofty pine,
the stout mighty oak, the maple so fair,
in fact, all the trees seemed to be in prayer
Anew this place was hallowed ground. for while my world was still,
I met the God of endless time, high on this Greene County hill.
Edna Creech Maraijko (1922- ______ )
Poem written 1973
"Pass It Along"
When a bit of sunshine hits you, After passing of a cloud;
When a bit of laughter gets you, And your spine is feeling proud;
Don' t forget to up and fling it at a soul thats feeling blue, for the minute
That you sling it; It's a boomerang to you.
William Franklin Creech (1894-1973)
Poem written 1960
I believe that today is the Best day since yesterday, and that tomorrow will be even better;
I believe in Life and Love; I believe Joy and Happiness for all;
I believe there is nothing better than a true Friend;
I believe that nothing worth while is wasted
I believe to be good is well, to do good is better, to make good is best
I believe in having big ideas that your Friends will believe in you
I believe it is not so much what we Expect from Life as what we plan to make it that counts
I believe he that tilleth his land shall have plenty of bread,
but he that Followth after vain persona shall have sorrow.
I believe that no one is successful without God.
William T. Creech (1915-1981)
Poem written Mother's Day 1933
Someone I love comes back to me, With every gentle face I see;
Beneath each wave of soft brown hair, I seem to see my mother there;
With every kind glance and word, It seems as if I must have heard;
Her speak and felt her tender gaze, with all her love of yesterdays;
And I am moved to take her hand, and tell her now that I understand;
How tired she grew beneath the strain of feeling every love one's pain;
Then I would smooth and kiss her face, And by her side take my place;
And sob my heartaches and cares away, The tears I have so long repressed;
Would lose their hurt upon her breast, I think if I could feel her touch;
Once more it would not matter much, How bright or how dark the day;
I love each mother that I see, who brings my own so nearer to me;
For her face has been a beacon ray, sweet to my memory and fresh today;
Pointing to Heaven, that home above, where I shall meet her, she whom I love.

Sion Creech, Sr. (1818-1887)
Sion Creech Sr. owned 11,000 acres of land in DeSota Pariah, La. and about 29,000
acres in Parnola & Shelby Counties Texas, making over 140,000 acres total. When he died his will left his last wife the Home place, 760 acres and lands in Texas (he had already given his children part of it) He left 1,400 acres in DeSota Parish, La. and 3,428 acres in Panola County Texas to his children by his first 2 wives. Sion Creech Sr. (known as Big Si) has a story that he was a tough, mean man and that he killed quite a few men. It is said that when he came to Sheveport, La. with his wagon train of cotton that the word went ahead to clear the way and that they were on the way. As the wagon train moved along the way; Sion Jr. (Little Si) and James (Little Jim) rode on either side of Big Si and were also very tough. It is also said that Little Si and Little Jim were guilty of killings. It seems that this same wagon train left La. and went to Texas the same way, only this time Daniel, Noah Jr., Sion Sr.'s brothers were with them and also Aaron Creech, his brother-in-law. Noah Creech Sr. remained in Alabama & La. until the others had settled.
December 3, 1860 - Sion Creech sold to T. G. Boyd. 1 copper colored 5 year old female
for $500.

June 3, 1864 - Sion Creech bought from G. W. Sims, 1 negro boy age 16 named Edmond for $3,300.

April 18, 1859 - Deed Book F - Panola County, Carthage, Texas- Deeds from Noah Creech Sr. & wife Sarah to P.C. Pyle; Daniel J. Creech; Thomas J. Creech; Noah Creech Jr. and to James J. Creech, a minor with Noah Creech Jr. as his agent until he reaches the age of 21 and meanwhile the land was to stay in the possession of Noah and Sarah Creech until their death.

Will: Noah Creech- Written August 1865 and filed on Jan 20, 1866 at Panola County Court House. He left every thing to his wife Sarah except his blacksmith tools which he left to Sion Creech Sr.

The 2nd wife of Sion Creech Sr. was Tilitha T. Harris, Billingsley even tho' on her marriage certificate to Sion Sr. it is Tabitha Billingsley. Her father Hudson Harris names her as Tillitha T. in a suit she filed against her brother it is Tillitha and Tabitha also her sister Martha Jane Harris Billingsley filed suit against her husband and gives Tilitha P. and T. T. Creech and Tabitha. They were the daughters of Hudson Harris whos' father was Sherrod Harris sometimes spelled Sherwood. The will of Hudson Harris and the two suits are on file at DeSota Parish, Mansfield. La. The will of Sherrod (Sherwood) Harris is in Anson South Carolina 1885.

John Creech, Sr. ( l758-ca 1783 )
John Creech, Sr. was born in old Dobbs-Johnston County, N.C., what was to become present day Lenoir County. He was the son of Benjamin Creech, Sr. and wife Mary Lewis. He was drafted into Captain Kennedy's Company, July 26, 1777, along with his brothers Benjamin Creech Jr. and Ezekiel Creech Sr. from Dobbs County, N.C. to serve in the American Revolution. It seems that he married just before he was drafted for service. He married Elizabeth Robinson, the daughter of Benjamin Robinson and wife Celia, of Dobbs County, N.C. John Creech, Sr. was shown on the Dobbs County 1769 and 1780 tax list, but not shown on the 1790 Federal Census, because he was dead by this date. He is buried in the old Creech Cemetery on Rainbow Run in present day Greene County, N.C. along with his two brothers and wives. There is no marker at present to his grave, but in the past his grave was marked as well as his brothers, but due to the markers being destroyed in the 1930's by a old black man, who was told to clean up the cemetery, knew no better, removed the tombs and put them in a wash on Rainbow Run (have never been found). Two men have seen these tombstones, Mr. Willie Sugg and William T. Creech, both now deceased.
After John' s death, Elizabeth, his wife sold their land in present day Lenoir County to Parrott Mewborn I and Benjamin Creech Jr. It seems that Elizabeth Robinson Creech, her brother Thomas Robinson, sister Easter Robinson, and Elizabeth's three sons, John Jr., Elijah, and Jonathan Creech set out by wagon train to the west. They reached Guilford County, N.C. in the year l781, where the first cousin of her husband Stephen Creech lived on land that he had bought from John Caldwell in the year 1773. Now this Stephen Creech had also bought lands in Montgomery and present day Wilkes County, N.C. Records show that Stephen was here until about the year 1784, then joining the wagon train with the others moved toward the western and north, part of Virginia, Montgomery County, Va.; Here they stayed until the year 1788, then they moved on toward old Lincoln County, Ky. now Harlan County, and Lee County, Virginia. They reached here about the year 1789 and settled; now Stephen Creech, being the oldest and looking out after the rest, help settle his two sons Ledocia and Enoch, Elizabeth & her three sons; Stephen returns to N.C. where he sells his land and returns to Lee County, Va. about the year 1798; Stephen's son William Creech, settled on land in Russell County, Va. By 1799, both Stephen Creech and John Creech Jr. (he is called by many as John Creech Sr. because he was the first John in Lee Co.) were listed as tax payers and paid one tithe each and Stephen on three horses. Enoch and Ledinah Crich appear on the personal property tax in Lee County in 1796. The John Caldwell in Guilford County, was brother to the wife of Ezekiel Creech Sr. the brother to John Creech Sr. husband of Elizabeth Robinson Creech. If Elizabeth ever remarried or if she lived to be of an old age, it is not known.

A Short History Of William Creech:
A Noted Man of the Kentucky Mountains

Uncle William (Billy) Creech of Harlan County Kentucky affectionately known as Uncle Billy", was the principle founder of the "Pine Mountain Settlement School", and a remarkable character whose benificence had great results in the Kentucky mountains. His death occurred in a Louisville hospital May the 18th 1918 and from there his body was taken to his home in Harlan County;

William Creech; beloved as the founder of the "Pine Mountain Settlement School",
One of the most important educational institutions to be established in the eastern Kentucky mountains, and was a picturesque character in that section of the State where many writers won fame with stories woven from real life.
Uncle Billy Creech as he was affectionately known to thousands of men, women and children throughout the country and the mountain sections of the State; came to here "Norton Memorial Infirmary" from his home at "Pine Mountain" Kentucky, several weeks ago for treatment. He was suffering from a complication of diseases and when his condition became desperate a surgical operation was decided on as a last resort and the only hope of saving his life; he came out of the ordeal very weak and his death was not unexpected.
Uncle William was born in Harlan county in 1845, and after serving through the States in the Civil War; he was one of the first pioneers to journey back over the Kentucky mountains to the headwaters of the Kentucky River. There he labored hard for many years to improve conditions. He inspired all his neighbors with the spirit of industry and many years ago began promoting his Settlement School. It was not, however until five years ago that he was able to deed all his property over to the "Pine Mountain Settlement School", to have and hold for shool purposes as long as the Constitution of the United States exists. According to the text of his written instrument the school today is prospering beyond the fondest hopes of "Uncle Billy" and those who were associated with him.
He had been conspicuous all through his life in his zeal for better things. Writing recently of his hopes for the children in the "Pine Mountain School". He says, "I dont look after wealth for them; I look to the future of our country. I want them taught the knowledge of good and evil and to serve the Living God ".
After the settlement of this school "Uncle Billy" and his followers in defatigably to raise funds for the building of a road from one of the isolated sections to the school. This highway he often said, "would liberate more than five thousand people to enable them to reach the education available at the settlement."
Success crowned that project, and he afterwards said, "That his lifes' work was finished and that he was ready to die happily".
The body of "Uncle Billy", was taken to Pine Mountain late in the day after his death. Beside his widow he is survived by the following children: Joseph G. Creech; William R. Creech; Henry Creech; and three daughters: Mrs. Folly Lewis; Mrs. Nancy Lewis; and Mrs. Rhoda Wilder; all residents of Kentucky.

The History of Uncle Billy Creech, founder of the "Pine Mountain Settlement School" was written buy, Ira Paulus Ison of Stephens, Ky. the son of Hannah Creech & husband _____lson. He also the following about his mother and the Creech family, 1916.

 [NOTE: (added April 2011) Charles Cowden requested the following be put on Old Dobbers, "This page credits the gift of land for the Pine Mountain Settlement School to the wrong William Creech. The correct William Creech is: William Creech, b. 30 Oct. 1845, d. 18 May 1918, m. Sarah "Sally" Dixon  15 Mar 1866.  Sarah, b. 13 Apr 1846, d. 02 Apr 1925, was the daughter of William Dixon of Harlan Co. KY.   William "Uncle Billy" Creech was the son of Joseph Creech and Mary "Polly" Campbell of Poor Fork, KY (now Cumberland, KY). I know the truth in this matter because I was born and raised in Harlan County, and I am descended from Enoch Taylor Creech, the brother of the correct William Creech. You may read an account of this in Uncle Billy's own words at http://familytreemaker.genealogy.com/users/c/r/e/Shelby-Creech/GENE890-0008.html  where he is listed as William Creech, Sr." END OF NOTE ]

The Creeches in general were an industrious people and as a rule were generous and kind and were mainly a sensible people. my mother was a mistic never went to school but two weeks during her life; learned the letters of the alphabet and the numerals but never did learn to read she thought it a waste of time she had learned to spell 9 words by sound and hearin~ others spell and could go foot in a spelling class to the head almost every time. She learned a lot of the Scriptures by quotation from others and could do almost all kind of work even chopping wood, cutting corn, husking corn, stripping and cutting cane to make sorghum; never was beat in hoeing corn by any man. Had her own sheep, her own geese, and her own chickens, could make and save money and generally bought whatever she wanted. In growing up she learned ginseng, yellow root and other herbs that she could sell. She bought all her own clothing after she got to going into the forest and take up anything that would sell in the store. When the ground would get too wet to work in the crops she would go into the forest to get the roots of all plants that would bring money. She had an eye as keen as an Indian and an ear to hear like a squirrel.

She carded wool, spun yarn to knit socks and stockings for the whole family. Wove cloth in the loom wove blanklets to sell and gave each of her ten children a twenty-five pound feather bed and gave each a heavy woolen blanket and a heavy bedded linsey quilt, bought ticking and made each of her children two heavy feather pillows. She cultivated her own garden mostly with a hoe. My oldest sister lived; to be almost 87 years old and my brother almost two years older, I will be 89 years old the 22 day of this month.
This the 18th day of February, I was 87 years, two months and five days old thia morning about three o'clock.
