- Born: Abt 1839, England 251
- Marriage: Mary Buckham
Hello James Anderson,
I found your name while browsing the web and note your mention of Creba.
That is my family! William Creba is my great grandfather.
He married Mary Buckham from South Monaghan and had 5 children as you listed Emma b1867 Mary b1869 John b1871 William b Jan 14 1877 and Harriet b 1879.
William went to Maple Creek Saskatchewan and John went to Herbert Sask where he was mayor in 1914. William #2 died in Maple Creek Jan 18, 1931.
Ours is the only Creba family in Canada and a few more in USA that I have found links to but not tracked any down. John had a spinster daughter Mary Gertrude b 1901 d 1970 who went back to Peterborough area when her parents died in Kerrobert.
If you are interested Harriet married a Porter who married a Houle who has family line in Summerland BC.
