*****
J. C. Creighton, Sergeant of the famed Seventh Cavalry, was in Reno at the time of the Custer battle on the Little Big Horn and was one of those who escaped death. Mr. Creighton was the grand commander for North Dakota for Indian war veterans. A few years after his marriage, they remained at Fort Lincoln until the War Department ordered it’s abandonment and the establishment of a new fort “at or near Mandan” and which thru the political machinations of the noted Alex McKenzie and others was located on the eastern side of the river “near” Mandan. Mr. and Mrs. Creighton then took up a homestead near the city where they resided for a time and then moved into the city where Mr Creighton engaged in the trade of painting and decorating.
