Daniel Creeden - Sunday's Obituary

Daniel Creeden was born on April 29, 1877 in Clinton County, Ohio to Timothy Creeden and Mary Ann Matson. Timothy was my gg-grandfather. Daniel was married to Lena Gleagall and they had two children together, Ned and Ida Belle. Both children died young and Lena and Daniel divorced. Daniel was a deputy sheriff when my great-grandfather Charles Creeden was sheriff of Mercer County, Ohio. I don't know much about Daniel's life after that, but it appears that he stayed in Mercer County.

From the Lima News in Ohio, March 22, 1962:

  CELINA - Daniel Creeden, 84, Rt. 2, Elida, died Wednesday at the Colonial Rest Home in Rockford.
