Creegan Family History

1870-1879

 

 

 

*     It looks like things have changed quite a bit in Alexandria and it seems the character of their neighborhood has changed and not for the better. See the census data for an explanation. By 1876, at the latest, they had moved to 55 North Pitt Street (see 1880-1889 History for more information on 55 N. Pitt Street).

*     Hugh is born only 3 months later on 7 Jun 1871.
