Daniel Creasap was born in Maryland where he lived until about 16 years of age, when he removed to Marion County, Ohio, with his parents, who located in Richland township where they later died.  On arriving at manhood, Daniel Creasap married Sarah Ann Cupp, who was born in Marion County and was a daughter of Peter Cupp, a native of Pennsylvania.  Thirteen children were born to this union. Mrs. Creasap dying when her son Samuel was a boy in years, Mr. Creasap married again and had four children by the second union. Daniel Creasap died in Marion County some years after retiring from agricultural work.

Samuel B. Creasap was reared in Claridon township until his 10th year, when his father moved to Marion township, and here he was reared and lived until he was 24 years old.  He was married October 9, 1873, to Dora A. Wolfe, who was born and had always lived in Salt Rock township.  Mrs. Creasap is a daughter of David and Eliza (Faurot) Wolfe, the former a native of Pennsylvania.  She had one sister, Ruffina, now deceased, who was the wife of Jacob Ansbaugh, and a brother, John L. Wolfe of Salt Rock township.  After their marriage, Mr. and Mrs. Creasap lived for one year in Marion township, then moved to Salt Rock township, where they resided for one year, after which they moved across the line into Wyandot County, where they engaged in farming for six years in Pitt township.  Returning then to Salt Rock township, they rented land for two years, and in 1883 purchased their present home place of 80 acres, situated in section 20; in 1900 they bought additional land, acquiring a tract of 80 3/4 acres, lying one mile west of the homestead, Mr. Creasap has always followed general farming.  He raises considerable live-stock and takes an especial pride in his horses.  His farm is one of the best improved in the township; the land is well tiled, good wells have been drilled and substantial farm buildings have been erected, the most of this work having been performed by the present owner.  Besides his farming interests, Mr. Creasap is a director of the Morral Banking Company and, fraternally, is connected with Salt Rock Lodge No. 883, I.O.O.F., of Morral.
