My Matthew Creed (1725 King Wm Co., VA-d.1793/1798 Surry Co.,NC) who married my Margaret (possibly McKinney, possible daughter of John McKinney d. 1751 Orange Co., Virginia) lived in Orange and Caroline Cos., Virginia.
Although I've done a lot of research on the CREEDS in Barbados and England, I believe my Matthew Creed was born in Virginia. Does anyone have more on the early CREEDS of Virginia????? The following are what I have on the early CREEDS of Virginia. Can you add to my research???
