GEORGE WASHINGTON6 CREAGER, son of John Carl5 Creager (Christian4, Adam3 Creager, Johann Casper2 Krieger/Creager, Hans Ernst1 Krieger) and Sarah Ann Prugh, was born 29 August 1855. His obituary indicates he was married, but the name of his wife is unknown. His sons name is given as being John Carl Creager born ca 1880. George died at the age of 29 years on 31 October 1884.

A hand written copy of the obituary reads:
CREAGER--At his home one mile northeast of Utica, Warren county, Ohio, October 31st, 1884, at 9:30 a.m., George W. Creager, of typhoid fever.
The deceased was born August 29, 1855 in Washington township, Montgomery county, Ohio, on the farm where his father, John C. Creager, now resides, three miles north of Centerville, on the Dayton pike. His remains were taken by the undertaker, Walter Zell, of Waynesville, to the parental home, November 3, where a funeral discourse was delivered by Rev. David Winters, of Dayton, Ohio, after which the remains were laid to rest in the cemetery near his father's residence. The deceased left a large circle of friends and relatives to mourn his untimely death, and a young wife and infant son, who will mourn the kind and loving husband and father. His honesty, uprightness and courteousness won the esteem of all who knew him. May He who tempers the wind to the shorn lamb watch over the young mother and her little Carl, and bless them with the comforting assurance that He will be a father to the fatherless and a present help in time of trouble."
