Cree Family History Network

The search for your Cree, Crie, Crea, Cre, Crey and Chree origins

My husband is in the Cree line.  His great grandmother was Virginia Ellen Cree b. 1860 d. 1950.  Her father was Stephen Waite Cree b. 1832 d. 1897 in Iowa.  I am looking for past and present family members.  We live in eastern Washington state.  

I am wanting to confirm who Hamilton Waite Cree's parents were.  Hamilton was born 1799 in Ohio and died in 1887 in Iowa.  I have his father as James Cree born 1765 in Northern Ireland and married to Isabella.  I am not sure if this is correct. 

Thank you for any help.

Hi - Have you seen the sister site to this one - you will find your relatives in line 19 - The Robert Cree Sr Line - http://cree.name/genealogies/charts.htm.  There is a wealth of information there and will answer your questions.

Thank you for the information.  It is very helpful.  

Hi Sandra, and welcome to the Cree Family History Network!

I am Mike Spathaky and I manage the "sister" website at www.cree.name which can be accessed from the link on the green menu bar at the top of this page. (This Cree FH Network site is managed by Trevor Cree.)

The information on the www.cree.name site about the various Cree individuals and families who migrated from Ireland to Pennsylvania in 1770 or thereabouts comes almost entirely from Robert H Cree of Huntingdon, PA.

The person page of your ancestor Hamilton Cree born 1799 is at www.cree.name/person.htm?id=3797. His name was not Hamilton Waites Cree since Waites was his wife's maiden surname. He was indeed the son of James and Isabella Cree.

James and Isabella were both born in Ireland but I believe were married in the USA. We don't know Isabella's maiden name or whether she knew James in Ireland. There is a biography of James written by Robert H Cree at www.cree.name/person.htm?id=3624

James Cree's parents were Robert Cree and Janet Hamilton who married in Ireland and had some of their children there. The family migrated to the USA, as Robert says, some time prior to 1770. Robert's details are at www.cree.name/person.htm?id=3618 and Janet's at www.cree.name/person.htm?id=3619. There are also details of your Cee line in the Family History Section of the website, on several pages starting at
www.cree.name/usa/cumberland.htm with links in GOLD text.

I hope this helps. If you have any further information that you would like to see added to the website or the Database, please let me know.

Best Wishes,

Thank you for the links.  I did wonder about Hamilton's middle name.

Thanks again,
