Understand, though, that Heraldry can only
be said to represent a whole family in as much as the Arms represents the noted
accomplishments of particular members of that family. According to my studies,
the "charges" of blue "martletts"
on the Creech Coat of Arms are related to service perhaps performed in the

MY CREECH FAMILY
JOSHUA & UNKNOWN
I have never been able to find any middle
name on any document for my 2nd great grandfather John Creech.
John Creech was born "near
JOHN & ELIZABETH
My 2nd GGF John Creech
married Elizabeth M. Brown, daughter of Andrew Jackson Brown and Sarah
My 2nd GGF John Creech died early in life in about December 1856, at the young age of 33 years. My 2nd GGM Elizabeth M. Brown Creech remarried 1 May 1858 and apparently the children were "taken in" by other relatives so her new husband, Caswell Sconce wouldn't have to raise (or refused to raise) her children by John Creech. I'm still investigating, but do know from census records that my great grandmother Celia C. Creech went to live with uncle George W. Creech and is shown there on the 1860 Lincoln Co., MO Census. Deborah Adaline Creech went to live with her mother's brother Andrew Miller Brown (1870 Lincoln Co., MO census, family #266). Two sons of Elizabeth Brown Creech, Robert Shapleigh & John F., went to live with her late husband's brother George W. Creech (1870 Lincoln Co., MO census). Sons Robert & John F. however are not listed on the 1860 Lincoln Co., MO census so they may have lived with their mother until some time after the 1860 census then were turned over to George W. Creech also.
