I am trying to research my line back through
Creighton family. I have gotten back to Calvin
Creighton (b 1837) in PA. His father was Andrew
Creighton (b 1801) in PA. His father was also
Andrew Creigton (b 1753?) in Edinburgh Scotland.
I have not been able to find any information
back into Scotland, nor have I been able to
find the Creightons listed in the census records.
I know that most of my family lived in Pennsylvania,
but am at a loss as to why they do not show up in
the census info.

Any information on either the Pennsylvania
family or the Scotland family would be much

Searching for info. on the family of Moses Creighton, who immigrated to U.S. from the London area of Ontario around 1900. He had daughters named: Mary Alice (Boedikker), Byrle (Hoadley), Florence (Hendrickson), and Lylah Reaford (Smith), who was my grandmother. They settled in San Francisco, CA. Moses' wife possibly named Muzzy. Would like to find out about Moses and any info. on when the Creightons may have come from Scotland and where they were from in Scotland. Much thanks for any help you can give me.

I do have a Mary Jane Creighton, but she was
born 1886. Were your CREIGHTONs from
Westmoreland county, mainly the area of
Larimer/Barner Hill?

Here is the info I have on our Mary Creighton: Her father and mother were James and Annie Creighton. From their marriage certificate, Mary had a guardian by the name of J.W. Reed. Mary and Sylvester Bennett were married in Barnesboro, Cambria Co., Pa. on July 6, 1900. As far as our records show, Mary and Sylvester had 3 children. Maryetta Bennett, James Bartlett Bennett, and Raymond Clyde Bennett. There was possibly a 4th child by the name of Agnes.

Our Mary Creighton was probably born about 1882 and lived in the Barnesboro, Cambria Co., area in Pennsylvania.
