Jesse A. Creekmore is a native of Daviess County, and was born March 21, 1834, and here grew up and received his education. He began life as a farmer, and is still engaged in the same worthy vocation. He owns a place of 160 acres in Liberty Township, which is well improved and arranged as a comfortable home. Mr. Creekmore is one of the earliest settlers in the township, and came to it when but three or four families lived within its limits, and they were miles apart. All kinds of wild game, such as deer, turkeys, etc., was abundant, and went far towards supplying the settlers with food. Breadstuffs could not be obtained within less than fifty miles, it taking from four to five days to make the trip over the primitive roads of that early day.
Mr. Creekmore was married, on the 3d day of June, 1855, to Miss Amanda A. Baber. Nine children were born of this union, five of whom still survive.
