S. A. J. Creekmore, farmer and ginner, Dublin, Ark. The subject of this sketch needs no introduction to the people of Logan County, Ark., for he is one of the most esteemed agriculturists and ginners of the same, and is one whose honesty and uprightness have never been questioned. He was born in Alabama in 1835, and was the son of Robert and Elizabeth (Germany) Creekmore, natives of North Carolina and Georgia, respectively. S. A. J. Creekmore had early instilled into his youthful mind all the details of farm life, and his educational advantages were rather limited. At the age of seventeen years he started out in business for himself as a farmer, miller and ginner, and these have since continued to be his chosen occupations. During the Civil War he enlisted and served the Confederacy faithfully and well until cessation of hostilities. His wife, who was formerly Miss Jane P. Davis, and whom he married in 1867, was the daughter of Ralph and Jane (Calhoun) Davis. To Mr. and Mrs. Creekmore have been born the following children: M. L., Lizzie M., Nannie R. and R. M., all living and having excellent health. Mr. Creekmore moved from Mississippi to Logan County, Ark., in 1872, and here he has since made his home, respected and esteemed by all acquainted with him. In his political views he is a strong adherent to Democratic principles, and has never failed to vote with that party. He and Mrs. Creekmore are members of the Christian Church.
