Home - Creaghe Family Historical Society

Welcome to the CFHS Website

The hope is that everyone will find the site informative and enjoyable to explore. It will, however, only be as valuable as the information placed in it. Therefore, please contribute. No piece of information is too small; it could provide a clue to a mystery that is unsolved for generations. For a submission to the database or for a private communication, please use editorcfhs@gmail.com.

Our Mission

The Creaghe Family Historical Society is dedicated to gathering, storing and sharing information related to the Creaghe family with particular interest in, but not limited to, the descendants of John Creaghe, Richard and Anne Heyliger of Castlepark, Golden, Co. Tipperary, Ireland, and the other families that have blended into the tree over the generations. This information can be used to inform future generations about their forebears – who they were, where they lived, how they lived and what they were like on a personal level.

St. George Creaghe as Sheriff

St George Creaghe , center bottom row.             I had always heard stories of my great-grandfather, St. George Creaghe (1852-1924), being sheriff of Apache County, Arizona Territory.  However, it was never clear just what that meant.  The only frames of reference were Western Movies, TV shows (there were plenty in the 1950’s; it was the…
