Grady County Sheriff's Office to add officer fallen 100 years ago to memorial

GRADY COUNTY, OK (KSWO)- The Grady County Sheriff's Office is trying to add a name to its fallen officers’ memorial.

They are in the process of moving it from the front of the jail to the front of the sheriff's office. It's set to happen over the course of the next eight weeks.

Officials with the sheriff's department say they learned last year that the name Andrew Creason had been left off of the memorial when it was first put together. They are now looking for anyone who may be related to Creason to take part in a ceremony commemorating the new memorial.

"Not only for us to have this on the monument, but for the family of the officer, and that's one of the reasons we're trying to get this on the news is to try to locate any relatives of this officer,” said Rusty Pyle, the Grady County Undersheriff.

Creason was a railroad constable when he was killed in Chickasha more than 100 years ago, and officials say he left behind a wife.
