Mary Creighten

ID#604, b. about 1802, d. about 1853
Father: not yet identified
Mother: not yet identified

Birth date: about 1802
Birth place: Pennsylvania.1 It has also been reported that Mary was born in West Virginia.2

Another spelling of her surname is Crughten.3

Mary married Owen J. Aston on 8 October 1827 in Ohio County, Virginia. where they were married by Thos. Beetes. Note that the official record is typed, so it seems likely that there was a written record and that there could be transcription errors. Owen's surname is spelled as Asten rather than Aston; Mary's name is spelled as Crughten rather than Creighten which I have been told is the correct spelling. It would be easy to mistake a handwritten "ei" as a "u" - especially if the loop of the "e" wasn't clear. Is it Creighten or Crughten? I hope to find convincing evidence one way or the other.3

Suggested info: Mary died about 1853.
