RE: Thomas
Yes I was thinking it was just a spot where they camped, and they scratched it into the rock. Of course it could could have been any of the 3 brothers, Tom, Bill, or Dan. I don't see any indication that Frank was ever there. Thanks for getting me pointed to the Tombstone newspaper, interesting read. My father stated that William went out and killed multiple indians after Tom was killed. He was gone so long they thought he might have gotten killed too. They sent a search party and ran into him on the way back. I cannot confirm that but it is part of the lore.

RE: Thomas Creach
So i see 'Creach' 'Apr' and 18 on the far right. Looks like a date. Was it clearer when you were there? The R is very distinct. Incredible! Thank you! Is this trip how you became interested in the Creach's or do you have another connection?

RE: Creech - Creach
Thank you. John W. sons were obviously cattlemen so for their father to be on the occasional cattle drive fits. Its a shame there is no record of his death that can be found. Our family story/rumor that I heard from my father nearly duplicates the story of the other family mentioned post 1874.

RE: Creech - Creach
There is a John W. that married a Matilda A. TIDWELL on March 17, 1876 in Hood Co. TX. That family claims that he left on a cattle drive in 1888 or 1889 and never returned. Our John W Creach married Pheby Jones ~1855(?) and dissappeared sometime around 1865. Could it be the same person that walked out on 2 families? Maybe so.

RE: Creech - Creach
Toms story is one my father told to me when I was a kid growing up. It wasn't until the last few days I was able to track down-and verify the information he told me from your memorial and other sources. Of course, he got some of his facts wrong and it was nice to verify the information in old newspaper article clippings. Thank you for establishing this Memorial, as it greatly facilitated me being able to get additional information.

Wofford Documentation
Hi Carol,

I ran across an email where you were discussing possible documentation on the family of John Wofford, his brother William and other's of this family. There is so much undocumented information on the internet. This is one of the big "stops" via all my family lines.

Thank you - Mellanie (#47670933)
