Andrew J. Creason is a native of Ray County, Missouri. His father, William Creason, was born in Bourbon County, Kentucky, June 6, 1796, and died in Ray County in 1871. His mother was a native of Tennessee. Andrew J. was born January 15, 1848, near the town of Orrick, and his childhood and early youth were passed in his father’s home.
