Roy, I am also a Creech descendant (my grandmother was Eula Creech of Johnston Co. NC). There is a book in the Johnston County Library's Genealogy Room title "The Creech Family" by James M. Creech. It contains lots of info on the Creech family including Benjamin & his wife Mary. Let me know if you have additional questions.
