Wedding Wednesday - Marriage of Catharine Creeden in 1780

This is the one of the oldest marriage records I've found for a Creeden in the US. According to this record from the Pennsylvania Archives, Catharine Creeden married Daniel Calloughhorn on April 10, 1780.

Marriage Record of the Swedes' Church, (Gloria Dei.) 1750-1810, Page 342
This may be the same Catharine Creeden that I found in an Indentured Servants List from 1772. Both records had locations in Philadelphia, PA.

This is from the Record of Indentures of Individuals Bound Out as Apprentices, Servants, etc. and of Germans and Other Redemptioners in the Office of the Mayor of the City of Philadelphia, October 3, 1771 - October 5, 1773 and shows that a Catharine Creeden from Ireland was indentured to Christian Grover on May 16, 1772.
