Lori, so you're descended from John Creek and Rebecca Bush? I didn't know they had a son named Jacob K. Obviously, I need to brush up on this branch! Can you help me?

Renee says:

Dear Donna, Here is the correct information as I know it today. This came to me via Carol Creek Bailey, she and I are descendant from James Radford Creek.

Killion Kreik (I found somewhere (a LDS researcher said) that back then when Germans signed their names it looked as if they were making "G"s instead of "K"s. And when Killion said his name it sounded like "Creek" so that's what the English wrote down.) I have also found from my other German ancestors that they were not concerned with spelling their names correctly every time. (i.e.. Johann would somedays be John and others be Jon. True story.)

Killion Kreik (_ 1750 - 1824-30) married to Margaret Weitzel Holloway (1755 - 1811) Catherine "Caty" John James William Woodrow Nancy Abraham Isaac Jacob J Lavisa (Louisa) Lucy David Susanna Philadelphia Killion Jr Solomon (not documented by all) Thomas

Note: When researching Killion Sr. in Gibson Co., IN i was advised that the will is no longer on file in Gibson Co., someone has "pinched it" Does anyone have a copy???

While pursuing some old must files I found copies of Barren Co., KY Deed Books C,D,& E 1808-1816 compiled by Sandra K. Gorin, desc of Isaac & Sarah Gorin, his 1st wife. She purchased the incomplete work of another Kentucky resident & researcher Eva Coe Peden. Here is the "lost" page 8. He signed "Gullian Gunrig and Margaret Gunrig. Note: Eva had stated that she did not understand the difference in the names. Gunrig/Guerig was the true spelling of Killian Creek's name - skg" Deed Book A *************** I am also a descendant of Killion and Margaret Creek, through his son Jacob J. Creek. I believe that Killion Sr. died between 1824 and 1830. He was enumerated in the 1820 census of Gibson County, Indiana, and the last record I have of him in Gibson County was in 1824, when he sued William Steel for a sum of money due him. He would have been in his 80's at this time.

His son, Killion Jr. md. Sarah Saxton 27 July 1815 in Gibson County, IN. Killion Jr. is the man who died in December 1851 in Gibson County.

I haven't done a lot of research looking for Killion's father, but I have quite a bit on Killion himself. Killion's granddaughter Jenetta Creek married Stephen Baldwin. These are my ancestors. Three of the Baldwin sons are buried in Oak Grove/Creek Cemetery in Gibson County. This cemetery is very near the Gibson/Posey border. Stephen Baldwin's land was located on the adjoining county line, in Posey County.

Here is a brief run-down on what I have for Killion Creek, Sr.--

I first located him in Bourbon County, Kentucky, where his daughter Catherine "Caty" married Andrew Sandusky in 1790. Killion himself was mentioned in court records in 1790: "Bourbon County, Kentucky Court Orders 1786-1793: An Every-Name Index" (Miami Beach, FL: T.L.C. Genealogy, 1995). In May Court 1790, Killis CREEK was recommended as lieutenant. In August Court 1790, Gillion [sic] CREEK was the defendant in a suit that was sent to arbitration.

Of course, much information has been found in Warren and Barren counties, Kentucky. Killion Creek, Sr. built a mill in Warren County, Kentucky that is still standing, as I understand it. Here is a description--from South Central Kentucky Historical and Genealogical Society, "Traces of South Central Kentucky" (Glasgow, KY: same, 1982) Volume 10, Issue 3, Fall 1982. "On the Cover. Our cover picture... is of the old mill that stands on Beaver Creek... three miles west of Glasgow. The mill site was approved by the Warren County Court on May 1, 1798 and the mill was built shortly thereafter by stone mason Killian Kreek. When Killian Kreek and his wife Margaret Kreek sold the mill to Simon Buford in October of 1799, the county of Barren had been formed. Killian and Margaret signed the deed with their German names 'Gullian Grieg and Margarett Grieg.' Over the years the mill has been known as Kreek's Mill, Buford's Mill..."

Killion Creek, Sr. was in Gibson County, Indiana as early as 1813, according to the following source: "Indiana Territorial Pioneer Records" (FHL 977.2 N4i) Gibson County. "27 March 1813. To his Excellency John Gibson acting Governor of the Indiana Territory. At a meeting of a Respectable number of Citizens of Gibson County for the purpose of Electing a Clerk for Said County, James Smith was unanimously chosen for Clerk and should your Excellency approve of said appointment, it would be gratifying the Choice of a number of Respectable Citizens of Gibson County." [Signed] William Creek, Jacob Creek, Isaac Creek. [Note: William should read Killian.]

In 1814, Killion Creek was awarded the contract to build the walls of the courthouse in Gibson County, IN: from Gil R. Stormont, "History of Gibson County, Indiana: Her People, Industries & Institutions" (B F Bowen & Co., Inc., 1914) p. 82. (FHL #934905) "The general plan of this first temple of justice for Gibson county... Work was commenced September 1, 1814. The contractor was KILLION CREEK--that is, he laid the walls..." And from the "Princeton Daily Clarion" edition Tuesday, April 15, 1975. "...The County commissioners found it necessary in 1814 to contract for a county courthouse. Killion Creek was awarded the contract for the two-story county building. Records indicate specifications included walls which measured 33 feet by 40 feet in height, a foundation 18 inches below the ground, and the first floor ceiling was 12 feet high..."

In 1817, Killion Creek, Sr. sold his land in Kentucky: from Joyce Martin Murray, "Deed Abstracts of Warren County, Kentucky 1812-1821 (Deed Bks F-6, G-7, H-8, I-9)" (Dallas, TX: author, 1986), p. 62. Killion Creek of Gibson County, Indiana sold land on Goose Spring in Warren, Kentucky to Harden Camp on 20 May 1817.

He was enumerated in the 1820 Gibson County, Indiana census. And lastly, he was seen in court records: From "Misc. Gibson County, Indiana Information" (FHL 977.234 V2c Vol. 7) 1817 - Killon Creek vs. Arthur Griffin, money. 1824 - Killion Creek vs. William Steel, money over a horse.

It is evidently on the cover of the South Central Kentucky Historical and Genealogical Society, "Traces of South Central Kentucky" (Glasgow, KY: same, 1982) Volume 10, Issue 3, Fall 1982. "On the Cover. Our cover of the old mill that stands on Beaver Creek...three miles west of Glasgow. The mill site was approved by the Warren County Court on May 1, 1798 and the mill was built shortly thereafter by stone mason Killian Kreek. When Killian Kreek and his wife Margaret Kreek sold the mill to Simon Buford in October of 1799, the county of Barren had been formed. Killian and Margaret signed the deed with their German names 'Gullian Grieg and Margarett Grieg.' Over the years the mill has been known as Kreek's Mill, Buford's Mill..."

Does anyone know why?

Jean Jorgensen

In Phillips & Kin of Franklin County, Illinois, December 1978;8(4):83-87, Mrs. Charles Creek writes about the Killian Creek signature--and gives us something to think about.

She wrote, "I think that Guillian Creek. . .did not care to adopt the mandated use of a formal surname (all Germans were ordered to adopt and use a surname by an official edict). While I must depend on an English-German dictionary to make a literal translation, it appears that when Guillian Creek was required to affix his signature to an instrument, he signed Guillian 'Gering,' or in English, Guillian 'the lessor' or 'the minor.' It would appear that he was saying that there was another Guillian who was either older or bigger than he. At this time we cannot assume that Guillian's father was also named Guillian. The bigger or older Guillan may have been an uncle or cousin or, less likely, not even related. I think that we can be certain that there was another Guillian." *********************** Barren County, Kentucky Order Book Number 1 (or) Order Book A 1799-1802

Greetings, I really appreciate all the info on Killion Creek. I descend from Killion's daughter Susannah, married to John Thomas Renfrow, their daughter Delphia, married to Nimrod Wilson, their son Owen Wilson b. 1851, married to Sude Hopper, their son Arthur Wilson, married to Amye Lois Bratcher.
There is a picture of the Creek mill, now know as Buford's Mill at the address:
Regards, Andrea
