Creech Family History


There are four files shown here.  Creech Census to 1900 contains all the census lines for Creech variant names from 1790 to 1900 for the entire USA.  It can be useful no matter what geographic branch of the Creech Family you're researching.  This file contains only Creech names.

VA-KY-Creech Index is the place to start if you are researching John, Jonathan or Elijah Creech of Lee and Harlan Counties, starting in 1820.  In this index, all Creeches and descendant family members(including non-Creech names) are listed alphabetically and associated with a Creech Number. The Creech Number is the way of finding that person's census data and lineage in the other two files.

VA-KY-Creech Census by Year contains all descendants organized by family in order of age and in order of Creech Number.  It includes entries for each census from 1820 to 1920 for each individual; Jonathan and Elijah are substantially complete to 1920.  John is complete to 1900 with some 1910 and 1920.  There are about 8800 individuals listed in the index and census by year.

VA-KY-Creech Raw Census contains a partial transcription of the census lines from 1820 to 1920 and is the basis for the Census by Year file.  There are nearly 20,000 census lines entered here.

The Creech to 1900 Instructions and VA-KY-Creeches Instruction files give more information on each of these.  I apologize for the size of the data files.
