Robert Cree Sr (of Cumberland Township, PA)

Male, CreeID#3618, (c 1729? - 1813)
ChartsLine 19. The Robert Cree Sr line of PA
ROBERT CREE, SR. - THE IMMIGRANT

Robert Cree, Sr. and his wife, Janet Hamilton Cree, along with a number of their children, came from County Down, Ireland, some time prior to 1770. The first place that they were known to have settled was in Bart Township, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. Extensive research in County Down by this writer and by members of the Cree Family History Society has not at this time (2006) established the parents of Robert Cree or of his wife Janet Hamilton. There is some possibility, but unproven at this time, that Robert Cree's father was the Robert Cree (1693-1756) who is buried in the Movilla Graveyard at Newtownards, County Down, Ireland.

The first recorded evidence of Robert Cree's residence in Pennsylvania is taken from the tax records in the Pennsylvania Archives where he is listed as paying taxes in Bart Township, Lancaster County for the years of 1771 and 1772. In these lists he is taxed for owning livestock but not for owning real estate property. Robert Cree and his family moved from Lancaster County westward to Cumberland (now Perry) County about 1773 as he is shown in the Land Grant section of the Penna. Archives as having warranted 50 acres of land in Rye Township, Cumberland County on 23 November 1773.

He evidently acquired additional land during the next few years as he was taxed for 150 acres in Rye Township for the years 1779, 1780 and 1781. Robert Cree and his family lived on this Rye Township homestead farm on the Big Buffalo Creek during the years of the American Revolution. At least three of his sons served during this time in the Cumberland County Militia.

Some time between 1781 and 1784, Robert Cree and some of his family left Cumberland County and moved westward more than 200 miles to Cumberland Township, Washington (now Greene) County, Pennsylvania. For some reason, he is not shown on the first assessment rolls for Cumberland Township, which were published in 1784, although his sons, Robert, Jr., Patrick and William are listed on these rolls. However, in the Cumberland County Courthouse at Carlisle, Pa. is the record of a transaction whereby Robert Cree of Washington County, Pa. sold his farm of 182 acres in Rye Township, Cumberland County, to Benjamin Bonsall on November 1, 1785. It is most likely that some of his children first moved to Washington County and that Robert, Sr. followed them there in late 1784 or early 1785. He did retain some land in Cumberland County as he sold a property on Big Buffalo Creek to John Kane on 24 November 1802.

The next record that we have of Robert Cree, Sr. is in the assessment rolls for Cumberland Township, Washington County, Pa. for the year 1788 where he is listed along with his sons Robert, Jr., James, William and Patrick. Robert Cree is next shown as the head of a family in the 1790 Federal census for Cumberland Township, Washington County. In the census listing under his name is shown one male under 16 years of age and three females.

On 31 March 1795, Robert Cree, Sr. purchased 300 acres of land in the northwestern part of Cumberland Township, Greene County, from John Carmichael for the sum of 320 pounds. The deed for this land was recorded in the Greene County Courthouse on 28 September 1795. Robert Cree lived on this land until his death in 1813 when, in accordance with the provisions of his will, it was bequeathed to his youngest son, Hamilton Cree.

Robert Cree and his wife Janet are most likely buried in the old abandoned Shepherd's Methodist Church Cemetery, located in Cumberland Township, Greene County, approximately one mile from their homestead farm. Although there are no tombstones marking the location of their graves, it is a known fact that they were early members of this church congregation and that at least two of their children and a number of their grandchildren are buried in this cemetery. Also, as a matter of convenience, this was the nearest public burial ground to their place of residence. Robert Cree and his wife were the parents of at least five known sons and four known daughters.

A John Cree is listed in the 1778 tax lists for Rye Twp., Cumberland County as a married taxable. Some other researchers have assumed that this John was a son of Robert Cree, Sr. who was also taxed in Rye Twp. in 1778. However, this has never been provn and it is my opinion that he was not a son of Robert although he possibly might have been a nephew or perhaps even a brother. John Cree did not accompany Robert Cree, Sr. and his family when they moved to Washington County, Pa. as he never appeared in any tax or census records for Washington or Greene Counties nor is there any record that he ever owned property in those counties. Furthermore, Robert Cree, Sr. did not include a son John in his Will. There is the possibility that this is the same John Cree who is shown on the 1780 tax lists for Hamilton Twp., Cumberland County and who later moved to Huntingdon County, Pa. and then on to Clearfield County, Pa. where he died in 1824.

Robert Cree Jr

Male, CreeID#3620, (c 1755 - c 1795)
ChartsLine 19. The Robert Cree Sr line of PA
Robert Cree Jr Very little is known about the life of Robert Cree, Jr. He was born in County Down, Ireland and came to the USA at an early age, sometime prior to 1770. He was possibly the oldest child of Robert and Janet Hamilton Cree. He was listed in the tax records of 1778 as being a 'single freeman' so he would have been born sometime prior to 1757. Robert Cree, Sr. and his family were living in Cumberland (now Perry) County, Pa. during the years of the Revolutionary War. Several of his children, including Robert, Jr. served during this war. Robert Jr.was a member of Capt. Gilbert McCoy's Co. of the Cumberland County Militia in the summer of 1779 and later served in Capt. William Crawford's Co. of the Washington County Militia in the fall of 1781. After this term of enlistment had expired, he evidently remained in Washington County and soon thereafter, he was followed there by his parents and the rest of his family.

Robert Cree, Jr. married Elizebeth Villars, daughter of John Villars, in Washington County in 1786. They were the parents of eight known children. The exact date of Robert's death is unknown, although according to the Washington County estate records (Register of Wills, File C-7-1797) he was dead sometime before November 5, 1795. On that date, bond was given in the amount of $3000 with one of the bondsmen being Elizabeth Cree, administratrix. The inventory of his estate was made on November 12, 1795. The final accounting of his estate was made in 1797. It was customary at that time to start the settlement of estates as soon as possible after death so he evidently died in the fall of 1795, possibly in the month of October. The place of his burial is unknown although it obviously would have been at some location in Washington (now Greene) County, Pa.

Sometime shortly after 1820, his widow, Elizebeth Villars Cree and some of her younger children moved to eastern Ohio, where she settled and bought property in Harrison County. She died there in 1841 and is buried in the Methodist Cemetery at Freeport, Harrison County.

There seems to be a great amount of confusion about the birth dates of the children of Robert Cree, Jr. and his wife, Elizabeth Villars Cree. Hanna, in his three books, 'Ohio Pioneers', 'Ohio Valley Genealogies', and 'History of Harrison County, Ohio', gives the following birth dates for these children :

Anne Cree 13 November 1788
Mary Cree 17 December 1789
Janet Cree 5 February 1790
Robert Cree 12 April 1791
George Cree 28 December 1793
Eleanor Cree 20 April 1795
John Cree 18 September 1796
James Cree 12 May 1798

These dates have also appeared in some other publications, no doubt having been taken from the books listed above. However, overwhelming evidence would indicate that many of these dates are in error. It is somewhat of a mystery where Hanna got the dates that he used in his books but the following birth dates which were taken from the grave stones of five of these children by the writer, are far more likely to be accurate.

Anne Cree 18 November 1788
Mary Cree 18 November 1788
Janet Cree 19 January 1790
Robert Cree 12 April 1791 (checks with Hanna's date)
John Cree 14 July 1793

One very obvious error in Hanna's dates would be those of Mary and Janet Cree. He shows Mary as having been born on 17 December 1789 and Janet on 5 February 1790, a time difference of approximately six weeks. He also lists John as having been born in September of 1796 and James in May of 1798 when the evidence indicates that their father had died by November of 1795.1 He was born c 1755 in County Down, Ireland. He was the son of Robert Cree Sr (of Cumberland Township, PA) and Jennet Hamilton. Robert Cree Jr was a private in Capt. William Crawford's Company of Washington County Militia between 1777 and 1783.2

In 1778 Robert Cree Jr was living in the household of Robert Cree Sr (of Cumberland Township, PA) in Rye Township, Cumberland (now Perry) County, Pennsylvania, USA, along with William Cree. Robert Cree Jr and William Cree were listed as Freemen, that is, unmarried men over 21 years of age. A John Cree was also listed. He may be an unknown brother.3

Robert Cree Jr married Elizabeth Villars, daughter of John Villars and Victoria Muskelroy, in 1786 in Washington County, Pennsylvania, USA.

His daughter Anne Cree was born on 18 November 1788 in Washington County, Pennsylvania.

His daughter Mary Cree was born on 18 November 1788 in Washington County, Pennsylvania.

His daughter Janet Cree was born on 19 January 1790 in Washington County, Pennsylvania.

His son Robert Cree was born on 12 April 1791 in Washington County, Pennsylvania.

His son George Cree was born c 1792 in Washington County, Pennsylvania.

On 22 May 1793 Robert Cree Jr bought seven acres of land in Tyrone township, Pennsylvania, USA.4

His son John Cree was born on 14 July 1793 in Washington County, Pennsylvania.5

His daughter Eleanor Cree was born on 20 April 1794 in Washington County, Pennsylvania.

Robert Cree Jr died c 1795 in Washington County, Pennsylvania. He was buried in an unknown location, Washington County, Pennsylvania, USA.

His son James Robert Cree was born on 12 May 1796? In Washington County, Pennsylvania.

Patrick Cree

Male, CreeID#3621, (c 1759 - between 1795 and 1800?)
ChartsLine 19. The Robert Cree Sr line of PA
Very little is known about Patrick Cree or his descendants. He was an older, if not the oldest, child of Robert and Janet Hamilton Cree and was obviously born in Ireland. He came to this country as a young boy with his parents and settled with them in Lancaster County, Penna. He was born prior to 1760, quite likely about 1755. His name first appears in the records when he is shown on the muster rolls of Capt. James Fisher's Company of the Cumberland County Militia in 1777. Robert Cree Sr. and his family were living in Cumberland (now Perry) County during the Revolutioary War years and several of his sons served in the Cumberland County Militia.

Patrick next appears on the Rye Township, Cumberland County, Pa. Tax Lists for the year 1780 where he is listed as a 'Freeman.' A Freeman at that time was defined as a single male, over 21 years of age, and who did not own property. From this we know that he was not yet married in 1780 and that he was then over 21 years of age.

Patrick Cree next shows up in the Assessment Lists of Cumberland Township, Washington County for the years of 1784 and 1788. Since he was not listed as a 'Freeman' on these lists, he was no doubt married sometime prior to 1784 and while still living in Cumberland County. Robert Cree, Sr. and all of his children apparently left Cumberland County and moved westward to Washington County, Pa. sometime shortly prior to 1785. Robert Cree, Jr. is known to have served in the Washington County Militia as early as 1781 and the rest of his family evidently followed him into this part of the country within the next several years.

In 1790, when he is listed in the first Federal Census for Washington County, Pa., Patrick Cree (listed as Crea) had a wife and two sons and possibly three daughters. At least the census records show four females in his household, one of which would have been his wife.

The last written reference to Patrick Cree that has been found is contained in the list of names of persons who bought at the Vendue or estate sale of his brother, Robert Cree, Jr., which was held in Washington County, Pa. in late 1795 or early 1796. The inventory of Robert Jr's estate was made on November 12, 1795 and the sale was probably held soon thereafter.

Patrick Cree's name seems to have vanished from all of the records after 1795. He does not appear in any of the 1800 Federal Census records nor is his name to be found in the records of any of the surrounding counties after that time. It would appear that he died sometime between 1795 and 1800, either in western Pennsylvania or in eastern Ohio. He is not mentioned in the will of his father, Robert Cree Sr. which was drawn up sometime in the 1790s. It is not known if he had died by the time that his father had written his will or if he was left out of the will for other unknwn reasons. It is interesting to note that Robert Sr. had provided in his will for the heirs of his deceased son, Robert Jr., but he makes no provisions for any of the heirs of his son Patrick.

No proven information is available at this time concerning the wife and children of Patrick Cree. The 1790 Federal Census for Washington County, Pa. indicates that he had two sons and possibly three daughters. However, recent research has turned up evidence that John Cree, who married Nancy Brothers in Belmont County, Ohio in 1808, could have been a son and Sarah Cree, who married Francis Van Schoik in Belmont County in 1805, was possibly a daughter. Also, there is some indication that Nancy Cree who married Daniel Hupp in Belmont County, was possibly another daughter. Accordingly, I have tentatively listed these three as children of Patrick Cree on his Family Group Sheets. It is hoped that further research will eventually prove this relationship.

Compiled by Robert H. Cree (1998.)1 Patrick Cree was born c 1759 in County Down, Ireland. He was the son of Robert Cree Sr (of Cumberland Township, PA) and Jennet Hamilton.

His son John Cree was born c 1787 in Washington County, Pennsylvania, USA.

His daughter Martha Cree was born in 1788 in Muddy Creek, Greene County, Pennsylvania, USA.2

His daughter Sarah Cree was born on 23 February 1788 in an unknown location, Washington County, Pennsylvania, USA.

His daughter Nancy Cree was born in 1792 or 1793 in Washington County, Pennsylvania.3,4

Patrick Cree died between 1795 and 1800?.

James Cree

Male, CreeID#3624, (c 1764 - 1837)
ChartsLine 19. The Robert Cree Sr line of PA
James Cree was the son of Robert and Janet Hamilton Cree. He was born in Ireland and accompanied his parents and some of his brothers and sisters to this country about 1770 where they first settled in Bart Township, Lancaster County, Pa. His sons, Hamilton and John, both state in the Federal Census of 1880 that their father was born in Ireland.

James was probably born about 1764, as he was not yet old enough to appear on the tax assessment lists for Cumberland Twp., Washington County, Pa. in 1784, although several of his brothers were listed in this assessment. However, his name does appear on the next assessment list which was taken in 1788. He was also old enough in 1790 to be shown in the Federal Census for Washington County as having a wife and one son and one daughter. Assuming that he was born in 1765, he would have been 19 years of age in 1784, 23 years of age in 1788 and 25 years of age in 1790. In the 1830 Federal Census for Center Township, Monroe County, Ohio, he is shown as being between 60 and 70 years of age, which would have placed his birth date between 1760 and 1770.

James Cree obviously lived with his parents in Lancaster and Cumberland Counties in Eastern Penna. and moved with them to Washington (now Greene) County, Pa. about 1783. He no doubt married in Washington County sometime between 1785 and 1788. His wife's first name was Isabella but no evidence has ever been found of her family name.

James Cree was still living in Penna. in 1795 for in that year he is shown as being one of the buyers at the executor's sale of the property of his late brother, Robert Cree, Jr. which was held in Washington County, Penna. In the will of Robert Cree, Sr. which was probated on 6 April 1813, James is listed as being one of his heirs.

The first written indication of James Cree's residence in Ohio seems to be the statement in Caldwell's History of Belmont Co., Ohio, which states that he came to York Township, Belmont County on 25 June 1805. However, he was evidently living somewhere in Ohio prior to that date as his son Hamilton (born 1799) and his son William (born 1803) are both shown in the census records as having been born in Ohio.

Other records and bits of information about James Cree, as taken from various histories, newspapers, and Court records of Monroe County, Ohio, are listed below in chronological order.

1837 - July term of Monroe County Court - Will of James Cree, Sr. admitted to the Court for probate by his executor, John Cree. (from this and from the preceding item, it is obvious that James Cree died sometime between March 15 and July of 1837)

1838 - Monroe County Deed Book, Vol. III, page 268 - dated 21 May. The heirs of James Cree, late of Monroe County, sold land in Township 6, Range 5 to John Morris. The heirs as listed are -

Hamilton Cree and Prudence, his wife
William Cree and Phebe, his wife
James Cree and Nancy, his wife
John Cree and Mary, his wife
Isaac Barrett and Margaret, his wife
Joseph Scott and Elizebeth, his wife
Robert Morris and Isabella, his wife
Isaac Cartwright and Nancy, his wife

From the above item and from other sources, it would appear that James Cree had at least four sons and four daughters.

1848 - Monroe County newspaper, 'Spirit of Democracy', issue of March 28 -

Died on Sunday last, very suddenly, at the home of J. Gibson, Center Township, Mrs. Isabella Cree, relict of the late James Cree, Sr., aged 86 years.1

James Cree was born c 1764 in County Down, Ireland. Interestingly a baptism record exists for a James Crea, son of Robert Crea, on 25 September 1764 in the Presbyterian Church at Abington PA. An Agnes Crea, daughter of Robert Crea was baptised on the same day and the entries are bracketed together. Now a number of documents indicate that Robert and Janet Cree and their family were still in Ireland at the birth of their penultimate child in 1769. The earliest date at which they were definitely in the USA is 1773. So this baptismal record would appear to pertain to a different family. The only way the entries could refer to Robert Cree Sr would be if the whole baptismal register were a later copy into which these entries were made retrospectively with the intention that they were to record baptisms that had taken place in Ireland. It is not unknown for a "fair copy" of a register to be made when, say, the original has become dilapidated or untidy.2,3 He was the son of Robert Cree Sr (of Cumberland Township, PA) and Jennet Hamilton.

James Cree married Isabella Cree (married surname) c 1787. [No record of the marriage has been found. However James is recorded as married with a one son and one daughter in 1790. (Federal Census for Washington County) - MS]

William Cree

Male, CreeID#3627, (c 1757 - after 1810)
ChartsLine 19. The Robert Cree Sr line of PA
William Cree was born c 1757 in County Down, Ireland. He was the son of Robert Cree Sr (of Cumberland Township, PA) and Jennet Hamilton.

William Cree was listed in the 1778 tax records for Rye Township, Cumberland County, Pa. as a 'single freeman' so he would have been born at the latest in 1757. A single freeman at that time was defined as a single male 21 years of age or older.1

A discussion of the relationship between Robert Cree Sr of Cumberland Township, Greene County, PA, and William Cree Sr of Jefferson Township, Greene County, PA.

There has been a considerable amount of speculation and controversy over the past few years among Cree researchers as to whether William Cree, who settled in Jefferson Township, Greene County, Pa. was a son of Robert Cree, Sr. who had settled about the same time a few miles away in Cumberland Township, Greene County, Pa.

We do know that Robert, Sr. had a son William, as he is mentioned in Robert's Will. We further know that the William who we are discussing here was of the proper age to have been Robert, Sr's son. We also know that Robert, Sr. and William both came to Washington (now Greene) County from Cumberland (now Perry) County, Pa. sometime between 1782 and 1785.

From this knowledge, it would seem likely that Robert, Sr. could indeed have been the father of William Cree of Jefferson Township. Consequently, numerous persons who have conducted a limited amount of research on the Crees of Greene County, Pennsylvania have assumed this to be so and have included this assumption in their various written, printed and electronic listings.

However, as a result of many years of research into the background of the Cree families who first lived in Cumberland County, Pa. and later in Washington County, Pa. (including Robert, Sr. and William Cree) I have reached the conclusion that , although there might have been some relationship between these two, they very definitely were not father and son. Accordingly, I am listing herewith some of the recorded data, known facts and personal assumptions that have prompted me to reach this conclusion.

First, and perhaps foremost, is the documented fact that there were two different William Crees of approximately the same age living at the same time in different but adjacent townships of Cumberland County, Pa. In Series 3, Volume 20, page 97 of the Pennsylvania Archives, William Cree and Robert Cree are listed in the Rye Township, Cumberland County tax assessment lists for the year 1778 as 'Freemen'. Also, in Series 3, Volume 20, page 102, a William Cree and a Robert Cree are listed in the Tyrone Township, Cumberland County tax assessment lists for the same year of 1778 as 'Freemen'. The term 'Freeman' was used in these tax assessment lists to indicate an unmarried male over 21 years of age who owned no real property. So according to this data, recorded in the official archives of the State of Pennsylvania, there were two William Crees and two Robert Crees of approximately the same age and unmarried, living in different townships of the same county appoximately 10-15 miles apart in the same year of 1778.

It is also a matter of record that Robert Cree, Sr. owned land and lived in Rye Township, Cumberland County, prior to his moving on to Cumberland Township, Washington (now Greene) County, Pa. So we must therefore assume that the William and Robert who were shown in the Rye Twp. assessment lists for 1778 were the sons of Robert Cree, Sr. as we know from his Will and from other sources that he had sons with these names.

So then who was the Robert Cree and the William Cree who were shown in the Tyrone Twp., assessment lists for 1778? Obviously, Robert was the one who married Mary Roddy and who remained in Cumberland (now Perry) County and who died there in Tyrone Township in 1832. And it seems logical to me that William could only have been the one who married Jane Marshall in 1780 and moved shortly thereafter to what is now Jefferson Township, Greene County, Pa.

Both Robert Cree who spent the remainder of his life in Tyrone Township, Perry County and William Cree who moved on to Greene County, were married by the Reverand John Linn, Pastor of the Centre Presbyterian Church in what was then Tyrone Township, Cumberland County. This would indicate that William was affiliated with the Presbyterian Church while living in Cumberland County. And it is a known fact that after moving to Jefferson Twp.,Washington (now Greene) County, Pa., William and all or most of his children were Presbyterians. John Cree, oldest son of William was buried in the Glades Presbyterian Cemetery near Carmichaels, Greene County, where William himself attended church. His daughter, Mary Kincaid and his daughter, Jane Holder, are both buried in the Presbyterian Church Cemetery at Jefferson, Greene County and most of the children of his son, William Jr. and many of his grandchildren are buried in the Muddy Creek Presbyterian Cemetery near his old homestead at Khedive, Greene County.

But Robert Cree, Sr. was a Methodist and apparently all, or at least most of his known children were Methodists. Robert and his wife Janet were members of the Shepherds Methodist Church near their home in Cumberland Township and all evidence indicates that they, as well as at least two of their children and a number of their grand children, are buried in the cemetery there.

We know that James Cree, son of Robert, Sr., settled in Monroe County, Ohio and was instrumental in establishing a Methodist Church in that county at an early date. Two of his sons, John and Hamilton, were later quite active in the Methodist Church in Saylor County, Iowa, where they both lived. Elizebeth Cree, widow of Robert Cree, Jr., was a member of the Methodist church at Freeport, Harrison County, Ohio and she and one of her grandsons are buried in the Methodist Cemetery at that place. Also one of her daughters, Mary Cree Morton, is buried in the Methodist Cemetery at Jefferson, Greene County, Pa. Finally, Hamilton Cree, Jr., son of Hamilton Cree and grandson of Robert Cree, Sr. was a Methodist minister in Brooke County, West Virginia.

So from all of this information, it seems evident that Robert Cree, Sr. and all or most of his children were Methodists, while William Cree and all or most of his children were Presbyterians. One would surmise that if William of Jefferson Township had been a son of Robert, Sr., he too would most likely have been a Methodist and would have been a member of the same church as that attended by his parents and his brothers and sisters. However, there is conclusive evidence that he chose to attend the Glades Presbyterian Church in the nearby town of Carmichaels.

In the 'History Of Greene County' by the Reverend William Hannah, (1882), pages 310-311, we find the following excerpt - "James Vance came from Ireland previous to the War of the Revolution in company with a friend whom he called Billy Cree. Vance was drafted into the army soon after his arrival and parted with his friend Cree in Philadelphia. After the close of the war, Vance settled near Morristown, New Jersey and in 1796 he emigrated from there to Greene County, Pa. James Vance was a Presbyterian and attended the Glades Presbyterian Church. To this neighborhood his friend Billy Cree had also emigrated some time previous. At the church services, the two men, having sat down side by side at the Communion Table, recognized each other as they arose, and after the service was over, they had a good time renewing their old friendship".

The significance of this excerpt from Reverend Hannah's book is that Billy Cree, who was obviously the William Cree of Jefferson Township, was evidently living in or near Philadelphia at the beginning of the Revolutionary War while it is a documented fact that Robert Cree, Sr. and his family were living in Rye Township, Cumberland County, Pa. as early as 1773. This also confirms the fact that William Cree attended Glades Presbyterian Church, as previously noted.

Another important point of discussion concerning the relationship (or lack of relationship) between Robert Cree, Sr. and William Cree is that a common method of confirming a connecting relationship between individuals or families is by the comparison of given names, as certain given names tend to run or repeat in certain family lines. For instance, among the known descendants of Robert Cree, Sr., the given name Robert appears in nearly every family for a number of generations. The same is true of the given name Hamilton which also appears in a number of families through at least several generations, either as a first or a middle name. This name was derived from the maiden name of Robert Cree, Sr's wife, Janet Hamilton. However, among the descendants of William and Jane Marshall Cree, the name Robert or the name Hamilton does not appear one single time through at least five generations of descendants.

So, if from all of the material presented here, we assume that William Cree of Jefferson Township was not the son of Robert Cree of Cumberland Township, then what did become of this William Cree who we know was the son of Robert, Sr. as noted in his Will and elsewhere? After being shown as a beneficiary in his father's Will which was written some time after 1795, William seems to have disappeared from all further records. It is quite possible (but not proven) that he was the father of the William Cree who is shown in the 1810 Federal Census lists for Floyd County, Kentucky. This William is shown in the census records as having been born between 1765 and 1784 which would have placed him in the proper age group to have been William's son. It is also a known fact that numerous individuals and families from the Greene County area of Pennsylvania migrated into Kentucky during the period from 1790 to 1800. It is a family tradition among the descendants of the William Cree of Floyd County that he came to Kentucky from Pennsylvania. William Cree of Floyd County, Kentucky died in 1814 leaving a widow and two children.

Finally, family tradition tends to strengthen the 'two William Cree' theory. Sometime around 1965, I made at least three visits to Miss Eva Cree at her home in Khedive, Greene County, Pa. She was about 80 years old at that time and lived in a small house along the main highway within sight of the old stone house that William Cree built about 1796. Eva (1884-1978) was the daughter of Charles H. Cree (1862-1926) and was a great, great granddaughter of William Cree, Sr. through his son John. At the time of these visits, she was the oldest living descendant of William Cree still living in this area. Eva had an extremely sharp mind for a person of her age and everyone in the area referred her to me as the local authority on the Crees. She was very positive in her contention that her Cree line (she referred to it as the 'Muddy Creek' Crees) was in no way related to the Robert Cree, Sr. line which she referred to as the 'Carmichael' Crees. She said that her father had often told her that it was common knowledge in his family that they were two entirely different branches of the Cree family. Eva said that as a child (sometime around the turn of the century) they had held a Cree reunion at the family farm at Khedive and that Cree 'cousins' came from as far away as Iowa and Illinois. However, she said that none of the 'Carmichael' Crees were invited or had attended this reunion. Eva also told me that her father often mentioned the trip that he, as a young man, along with some of his relatives had made to Perry County, Pa. to visit some of their 'cousins' living there. The only Crees living in Perry County at that time were descendants of the Robert Cree of Tyrone Township who was shown, along with William, in the 1779 tax assessment lists. He is the one that from all available evidence was the brother of William Cree, Sr.

One final bit of evidence should definitely prove that there were two different William Crees living in relative proximity to each other in the Greene County area of Pennsylvania in the late 1700s or the early 1800s. In Robert Cree, Sr's Will, which was written sometime between 1795 and 1813, we find the following entry - 'I give and bequeath unto my son William Cree the sum of twenty five pounds'. This proves that Robert Cree did indeed have a son William and that he was one of the beneficiaries of his Will. This said Will was witnessed by three persons, one of whom was a William Cree. However, according to the existing laws of the State of Pennsylvania, any person who was a beneficiary to a Will could not be a witness to this same Will. It was a legal requirement that Wills must be witnessed by 'disinterested parties'. Since this Will could not legally have been witnessed by Robert Cree's son William, then it obviously was witnessed by the only other William Cree living in the area and that was the William of Jefferson Township.

Since we conclude from the above that this William was not the son of Robert, Sr., if there was any relationship at all between the two, then there is some possibility that since William was approximately 19 years younger than Robert, he might have been his nephew.

Robert H. Cree (2006.)2



In 1778 William Cree was living in the household of Robert Cree Sr (of Cumberland Township, PA) in Rye Township, Cumberland (now Perry) County, Pennsylvania, USA, along with Robert Cree Jr. William Cree and Robert Cree Jr were listed as Freemen, that is, unmarried men over 21 years of age. A John Cree was also listed. He may be an unknown brother.3 In 1810 William Cree was living in Floyd County, Kentucky, USA. He was listed in the age group 45 or over.4



William Cree died after 1810.

His father Robert Cree Jr died c 1795 in Washington County, Pennsylvania, USA. James Robert Cree was born on 12 May 1796? In Washington County, Pennsylvania. The date given by Robert H Cree is 12 May 1798, which seems most unlikely as James's father Robert Cree Jr died in the fall of 1795. A birth in May 1796 therefore seems more likely although we have no firm evidence for it. A birth in May 1795 is possible although rather soon after Eleanor's. Without sight of original documents or a headstone it is difficult to check. He was the son of Robert Cree Jr and Elizabeth Villars.
