Biography:Thomas C. McCreery (December 12, 1816 - July 10, 1890) was a Democratic U.S. Senator from Kentucky.

Born near Owensboro, Kentucky, McCreery graduated from Centre College, in Danville, Kentucky, in 1837. He studied law, passed the bar, and commenced practice in Frankfort, Kentucky. He then returned to Owensboro and engaged in literary pursuits.

He ran unsuccessfully for election in 1842 to the Twenty-eighth Congress, and again in 1844 to the Twenty-ninth Congress. He served as a presidential elector on the Democratic tickets in 1852, 1856, and 1860.
