The link between Joseph Cree and his supposed father John Cree Sr of New York City is not to be taken as proved at present (2013.)1 Joseph Cree was born c 1763.1 He was the son of John Cree Sr and Jean McMullen.

His father John Cree Sr died in January 1778 in New York, USA.1

All information about Joseph and Ann Cree and their descendants was researched by Gary L Maher and is reproduced here with his kind permission. Text in the entries and biographies relating to this line is copyright © Gary L Maher, 1988-2010. Gary Maher writes:

I have been researching my Cree family on and off since 1976, most seriously since 1987.

In the late 1980s, I began compiling a genealogy of the descendants of my ancestor Joseph Cree, who lived in Elizabeth, New Jersey, and died in 1798. I plan to publish this genealogy when I am "finished" with it. In the meantime, I am making a draft of the first three generations available on these pages. It is my hope that it will help others trace their ancestry and that they will contact me to be added to my work.

The version posted here contains only a small portion of the information I have compiled. My full draft features footnotes which indicate the sources of all data and is "complete" through the Fourth and part of the Fifth Generations. Additionally, I have traced many lines further, some to the present date. For example, if the child of a Third Generation family is shown with a four digit number to the left, that indicates a full entry for that child and his/her family in the Fourth Generation section of my full draft.

Two final points to keep in mind:

1) Please send me all additions or corrections for inclusion in the next revision.

2) I have devoted much time and effort to this genealogy, so if you find useful information therein, please include a citation to the source.

This is an original work of authorship in which I claim all applicable rights and privileges under U.S. copyright laws and international conventions.2

Since neither George nor Mary appear in any subsequent Newark city directory or census, it appears that they removed from New Jersey at least before the 1840 Census. The couple sold property in Newark on June 12, 1837, and they may have left New Jersey at that time. No children of this marriage have been identified.1

James H Morrow

Male, CreeID#7038, (October 1827 - )
ChartsLine 18. The New Jersey line
Interestingly, although James and Sarah were not married until 1853, the 1850 Census shows James living in Newark with a wife named Sarah, who is exactly the right age to be Sarah Cree. According to the census, they were married within the year. Further, Sarah Cree does not otherwise appear in that Census. The Sarah living with James could have been either Sarah Cree or a prior wife of James. James had two children between 1850 and September, 1853. It is probable that these two children, Sarah and Mary Ella, were not children of Sarah Cree, but were rather children of James Morrow and a prior wife.

The 1900 Census provides some evidence that James had a prior marriage. It states that he had been married for 30 years; however, this entry originally read "50" and was scratched out. Even if his marriage to Sarah Cree were included, the total years married would only be 46. The inference is that he was first married in 1849 or early 1850, as suggested by the 1850 Census. This would mean that Sarah Cree was his second wife. One further indication of a possible earlier marriage is that the 1860 Census shows James and the second Sarah living in the household of Sarah Wintisbottom, a widow, aged 57. It is possible that she was the mother of James' first wife Sarah, as she would have been 28 when the younger Sarah was born. To further confound matters, the marriage record of Mary Ella Morrow states that her mother's name was Margaret.

James and Sarah either divorced or separated before 1867, although I have been unable to discover a record of their supposed divorce. Despite the fact that Sarah lived until July 1, 1870, the birth record of Carrie May Morrow, born May 1, 1867, lists her parents as James and Eliza Ann Morrow. The birth record of Grace A. Morrow, born July 10, 1869, shows the same parents. Further, the 1870 Census enumerates James and Eliza living together, although Sarah was still alive. Finally, Sarah died in Elizabeth, while James was still living in Newark.

James married third c. 1867 or 1870 Ann Eliza Schoner, born June, 1845. Although the 1900 Census indicates that she had been married for 30 years, the original scratched-out entry read "33." If the 30 is correct, this couple had two children out of wedlock. It is more likely that they were married in 1866 or 1867. In any case, the children of James and Ann were Carrie May, Grace A., Minnie E., Florence I., George J. and Anna N. Morrow. James was a shoe cutter and lived in Newark from at least 1850 onward. He lived at 73 Court (1862), South Prospect at the corner of East Kinney (1864), 101 Pacific (1870) and 155 Oliver Street (before 1880 to after 1900). It appears that James and Sarah had no children together. James H Morrow was born in October 1827 in New Jersey, USA.1

James H Morrow married Sarah Adelia Cree, daughter of Jonathan Cree and Mary Pierson, on 24 November 1853 in Methodist Episcopal Church, Elizabeth, New Jersey, USA. Sarah's sister Martha was married on the same day. Interestingly, although James and Sarah were not married until 1853, the 1850 Census shows James living in Newark with a wife named Sarah, who is exactly the right age to be Sarah Cree. It appears that James and Sarah had no children together.1 James H Morrow and Sarah Adelia Cree were divorced before 1867.1

ChartsLine 18. The New Jersey line
Susan Cree was born on 3 April 1819 in New York, New York State, USA.1 She was the daughter of William Cree and Matilda Griffin.

Susan Cree married Zalmon W Cargill on 12 October 1838 in Owenville, New York State, USA. The marriage may have been on 4 November 1839. The discrepancy in their marriage date may be due to the fact that the newspaper notice was abstracted, and, therefore, the date might have been incorrectly noted. In any case, the marriages in the William Cree family bible are listed chronologically, and Susan's is listed before her sister Mary's. If these entries were separately made contemporaneously with the marriages, this would indicate Susan's marriage occurred prior to Mary's, or before April 25, 1839.

Zalmon and Susan had children George Cargill (died young), George W. Cargill, James N. Cargill, Susan Cargill and Zalmon Cargill.1

At least 1840 to at least 186 Susan Cree and Zalmon W Cargill were living in North Salem, New York State, USA.1

Her father William Cree died on 11 September 1856 in North Salem, Westchester County, New York State, USA.1

Zalmon and Susan sold two pieces of land in North Salem in 1860 (on February 1 and July 27), and may have moved at that time, as they are not in the 1870 Census of North Salem.1

Her husband Zalmon W Cargill died in 1881.1

In 1886 Susan Cree and Zalmon W Cargill were living in Waterbury, Connecticut, USA.1
