Hi Janet,
Well, I have a record of your Lewis Henry, Jr. and family in Daviess Co. in the 1900
federal census. I haven't been able to establish any connection to my CREGAR/CREAGER
family who moved from Preble Co., OH to Daviess Co., IN in 1858 though. I also have
some marriage and death info. The wife's name in this census listing is an aberration
of Melissa, I think (maybe she was called 'Mel'?):

You can find reference to Lillie Creager on the Daviess Co., IN website regarding the
Washington High School Year Book in 1916--she was author of the 'jokes'!

Also have this:

> Washington, Daviess Co., IN
> Oak Grove Cemetery
> Section J:
> Lewis H. Creager b 1858 d 14 Aug 1951
> Melissa A Creager b 1858 d 1930(Bur. 18 Oct) w/o Lewis H.

I wish we could find a connection but so far I haven't had much luck :-(......

Good luck!
Terri
