She was referred to as Jean Cree of this city, one of his two daughters-in-law, by John McMullen in his will dated 29 March 1750.

She was referred to as Jean Cree of this city, one of his two daughters-in-law, by John McMullen in his will dated 29 March 1750.

David Cree

Male, CreeID#9433, (1766 - )
David Cree was born in 1766.1 He was the son of John Cree Sr and Jean McMullen.

David Cree was a printer. in 1784 in Morristown, New Jersey, USA. He probably learned the trade from Shepard Kollock in Chatham who also employed his brother Joseph for fifteen years.2

On 30 June 1784 David Cree printed the first newspaper that was ever printed in Morristown. After the failure of that venture in 1786 he became a journeyman printer in Phildelphia, where he was involved in strike action.3

  2. [S470] E Richard McKinstry, "The Press in Eighteenth-Century Morristown, New Jersey", The Press in Eighteenth-Century Morristown, New Jersey 43 (1981), pp 3-17, "

    The press in the middle Atlantic states expanded from the region's two most important cities, Philadelphia and New York. James Parker, Isaac Collins, and Shepard Kollock, New Jersey's three pioneer printers, either served apprenticeships, worked as journeymen, or operated printing shops in these places. As time passed they, in turn, trained such noted eighteenth-century New Jersey pressmen as Shelly Arnett, Matthias Day, and John Woods. Evidence suggests that David Cree, Morristown's first printer, learned the trade from Shepard Kollock in Chatham.

    On Wednesday, June 30, 1784, Joseph Lewis, a Morristown attorney, recorded in his journal: Cloudy & a small shower. This day David Cree printed the first newspaper that was ever printed in Morristown. The Morristown Gazette and New Jersey Advertiser did not, unfortunately, receive the support its editor-printer had hoped for. Within a few months Cree was forced to abandon it and all other printing in Morristown. Moving to Springfield, a community only a dozen miles away, he published The Morning Herald and Weekly Advertiser, another newspaper that soon failed.

    It is not unreasonable to assume that Cree planned to fill the printing void created in northern New Jersey when Shepard Kollock left Chatham in November 1783. That he worked with Kollock in Chatham is possible, since a Joseph Cree, perhaps a relative, was a journeyman under this master-printer for fifteen years. Rejecting coincidences of names, occupations, and residences, one might conclude that David Cree opened his own business in Morristown acquainted with the area and optimistic because of Kollock's fairly successful six-year career in a nearby village. It could not have taken Cree long to realize, however, that sufficient advertising revenues and subscribers would not be forthcoming.

    Ten months after the first issue of the Gazette, he still requested that patrons owing money pay their debts. In addition, Cree could not rely on the army as Kollock had during the Revolutionary War for patronage, financial assistance, and supplies. A town of 3,000 people could support neither a newspaper nor a printing office...

    The development of printing in Morristown paralleled the development of printing in post-revolutionary America. After the war, opportunities were created for enterprising printers in sparsely settled but growing areas of the country. It was common for printers to leave established firms to fill the demand created by an increasingly mobile population. David Cree sought to exploit what he thought was a promising market in Morristown, but like so many of his contemporaries elsewhere, he failed in his efforts. A restless worker, Cree drifted from one place to another, finally finding himself in Philadelphia, where he took part in an early journeymen's strike in 1786..."
  3. [S471] William Nelson, Some New Jersey printers and printing in the eighteenth century (Worcester, MA: The Society, 1911), "

    Joseph Lewis, of Morristown, made this entry in his diary, under date of Wednesday, June 30, 1784; Cloudy & a small shower. — This day David Cree printed the first newspaper that was ever printed in Morristown.

    The most diligent search has failed to bring to lght a copy of this newspaper, or to reveal its title. Moreover, the name of David Cree is utterly unknown in local annals. But in the New York Gazetteer of March 17, 1786, appears this advertisement: To be sold on Wednesday, the fifth of April, at Springfield, New Jersey, Sundry Printing Materials, Formerly belonging to David Cree, distressed for Rent.

    Springfield is scarcely ten miles from Morristown. It is quite possible that Cree had rashly started a newspaper at the latter place, on the day mentioned in Lewis's diary, but it was so ephemeral that its very name has been forgotten. When he abandoned his printing materials, to be sold for arrears of rent, he journeyed to Philadelphia, where we find him a few months later in a company of Journeymen Printers of that city combining to resist a threatened reduction of their wages to thirty-five shillings per week, and pledging themselves not to engage to work at any Printing Office in the city or country under the sum of six dollars per week."
