Notes for H
UGH WATSON CREIGHTON:
Hugh Watson Creighton was born in County Down, Ireland, near Belfast, on November 1, 1800. He emigrated to Montreal, Canada, around 1823 with his first wife, Eliza, and three children. Two children died and were buried in Canada. Eliza died and was buried along the canal between Cleveland, Ohio and Canton, Ohio. On may 3, 1832, Hugh married Jean McPherson in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and moved to Massilon, Ohio in 1833.

Hugh carried with him a letter of introduction that reads:

"That Hugh Creighton and wife have been in the Presbyterian congregation of Crumbaugh and in full communion; that they always conducted themselves with propriety and Christian prudence and may be received members of any other worshipping society of Christians is certified by me, Samuel Crosby (?), Presbyterian Minister, Drumbaugh, County Down".

Hugh was the youngest of a large family. His mother died when he was young, and he was raised by his bachelor uncle, Hugh Watson. The family were linen weavers in Belfast, Ireland. There is a letter of introduction from his Presbyterian minister in Crumbaugh County Down, Ireland, dated April 8, 1822 (in posession of Creighton Fricek). Hugh was naturalized in Canton, Ohio on May 25, 1839, testified to October 7, 1844.
