NOTE: Creekpaum is a family name that was originally Krischbaum or a close spelling variation. There were a few of this family in Kentucky around 1800. John H. Creekpaum married Nancy Butcher, daughter of Gasper Butcher. She was born in 1810 in Kentucky. Creekpaum cemetery is fairly sparse in number of graves. There is a large coal mine next to it and you can see the dust of the earth movers. It is an isolated area. There used to be a church there but when it burned down they kept the steps to it as a memorial. I'm not sure if the steps are still there. There are several Butchers there including Alsey, wife of Samuel, son of Gasper.  Karen
