Edward Creer

Available sources do not agree as to the name of the pioneer company with which the Creer family crossed the plains, but they do agree that it was in 1854. A book entitled "Creer," edited by Leland H. Creer says they were in the William Fields Company; Pioneers and Prominent Men of Utah places them in the Job Smith Company. Additional research is needed to find a "primary source" that will settle this issue.The obituary of his daughter also confirms the family's travel to Utah in 1854.
