Biography of Alexander McCreight
Springfield, Clark County, OH Biographies





ALEXANDER McCREIGHT, farmer; P. O. Springfield; is also connected with the Malleable Iron Works of Springfield, but devotes his attention more particularly to the farm. His parents, Alesander and Anna C. (Culbertson) McCreight, came to Ohio in 1841, located on the farm (now in the possession of the heirs), where they lived until their death, the father departing this life Aug. 27, 1849, and the mother Jan, 21, 1867. They were admirable characters, and highly esteemed by all who knew them. In their church relations they were Presbyterians. Politically, Republicans. Of their seven children, viz., James W., Anna Duncan, Jane S., Elizabeth, Robert C., John A. and Alesander, but three are now living; John, at Harper's Ferry, Virginia; Alexander and his sister Anna, on the homestead farm, which is beautifully located just beyond the city limits on North Limestone street. Anna was married, March 21, 1848. to John R. Blount, with whom she lived happily but eighteen short months, when that dread destroyer, cholera, removed him from her, leaving her and their only child to mourn his loss.
