From other sources, not verified, Uriah may have been born in Mahoning or Trumbell County, OH. First time I found him in a census was 1850 residing in Smith Township, Mahoning Cty, OH. Have the marriage record for he and Rebecca, they were married by Zebulon Rudolph, the father-in-law of President Garfield. Rebecca & Uriah migrated to Missouri in 1855, shortly after some of her aunts and/or uncles (NOAH Family) arrived there. In the 1850 census there also were listed a James Thompson, William Strong and Ann E. Bryan as living in the household. Many of his descendants continue to live in the Clinton and Caldwell County, MO area.

My David Craig was born SC abt 1801. The first time I can find him on the Census is 1840 in Pike County, AL. He married Martha Beaman bef. 1830. David bought land 12-21-1842 in Pike Co., AL. The deed was witnessed by James D. Craig.

I found a James D. Craig listed in 1820 SC. He has a male living with him in the same age range as my David. Could this be his father??

James CRAIG b. 1766 m. Rebeckah HILL 1793 Clark Co. KY. Resided in Green/Taylor Co. KY until 1829 when they moved to Morgan/Johnson Co. IN to join their other children who had moved in 1819. They traveled with STOTTS and Nimrod STONE.

Some clues I have are:

1) James is linked to Joseph COLVILLE by a deed, giving him power of attorney to sell land in Green Co. KY. He speaks of him in glowing terms, not just like a casual aquaintance.

2) Joseph COLVILLE's father is Andrew COLVILLE b. Fredrick Co. VA who was married to an Ann CRAIG. Rumor has it her father is a William CRAIG.

3) Joseph and his family moved to Blount Co. TN. the COLVILLE family is associated with the VANCE, MONTGOMERY families.

4) Andrew COLVILLE served at King's mountain along with Robert CRAIG of Abington, Washington, VA. He is also listed in Washington Co. with DUNCAN, VANCE, MONTGOMERY. (of course, I can't find the petition right now) I believe a John, James and Robert CRAIG.

5) The VANCE, MONGOMERY, COLVILLE families came from Pennsylvania. There are some Quaker links to the various lines.

I believe I may be linked to the CRAIGs in PA through VA, KY, then to TN or Indiana, depending on which way they migrated.

The first known of my CRAIGS is William (John?) CRAIG b abt 1860 poss. Sutton, Que, Canada m Margaret MILLER and son William James CRAIG b abt 1890 poss. Sutton m Sophia WHYTE in (Springfield, MA). William and Margaret removed to Derby, VT and then to Springfield. William James served Canada in WWI and was stationed in Nova Scotia. He was living in Springfield, MA at the time, but the story is he felt a loyalty to Canada, so left his family to serve there.

Wondering if he might have still been a Canadian citizen???

Pat Craig


I am not sure what your definition of an "orphan" is but as a Craig out on the east coast of North America in Newfoundland in 1844, my ggraddfather,Thomas Craig would surely qualify. I guess as the only family with the surname Craig in this province I must qualify as an orphan as well.

Thomas Craig left Kildare in 1844 at the age of 12 and set out for North America. I am not sure if he meant to reach Newfoundland or to continue on with the other Craigs to the mainland.Did he just get lost and lose his connection with his family back in Kildare or in some other part of North America.

I have noted as I read all of the messages that are posted that names that are common in your families have been found in my tree...Thomas, William, James, George.
