Descendants of JAMES CRAIG.. 10

 


CRAIG

Most of information I have on my Craig line comes from census and vital records from the Fayette County Virginia/West Virginia region. James Craig, born 1797 Virginia, is the first verified Craig ancestor – he is settled in Fayette County at least by 1840.  Earlier census records do not adequately prove his presence.

In the 1850 Fayette County, James is lively near William Craig and his wife, Catherine.  William actually shows up in two places in 1850 – he can also be found in Floyd County, Virginia.  Also in 1850 Fayette County is John Creigh and his wife, Deliah.  According to John’s 1874 death record in Fayette County, he is the son of Thomas and Margaret Creigh of Greenbrier County.  Thomas Creigh is reported in Greenbrier County at least from the time of the birth of his son, Doctor Thomas Creigh.  I have concentrated a lot of effort trying to prove a connection between James, William, and John and the senior Thomas Creigh.

Around 1827, James Craig married Sarah. I found a James Craig marriage to Sarah Blake on 15 December 1825 Kanawha County, Virginia - but do not know if this is them. In the 1850 Kanawha County census there is another James Craig, 63 years old, with a 21 year old daughter named Caroline and a 16 year old son named Nicholas - his wife had not been listed with him so I was unable to verify her name. If my James Craig is the one that married Sarah Blake then there is information available through the LDS Church that puts the Blake line back to the 1600's - beginning with Sarah's parents, James (b. 1780 Greenbrier County, VA, d. 9 Sep 1833 Kanawha County, VA) and Jane Arthur Blake (m: 31 Jul 1805 Greenbrier County, VA). I continued to track James and Sarah Craig in the 1860, 1870 and 1880 census reports:

Thanks to my cousin, Joyce Grigsby, I have pictures of the grave stones of James and Sarah M. Craig, from the Craig Cemetery in Fayette County, W.VA. James died 23 February, 1887 (aged 90 years - a soldier of the war of 1812), and Sarah M. Craig died 30 July, 1892 (aged 83 years). My 3rd great-grandmother, Sarah Frances Craig, is buried with them.

In 1858, Sarah F. Craig married Benjamin Franklin Darlington. Benjamin was the son of William and Ann Holliday Darlington. Benjamin and Sarah were the parents of nine children - their son, James William Franklin "Frank" Darlington, was my great-great-grandfather.

Frank Darlington married Josephine Quillen on 4 September 1900, in Fayette County, W.VA. Josephine's parents were James and "Maggie" Biggins Quillen. Frank and Josephine had four children - their daughter, Carmen Pearl Darlington, was my great-grandmother.

Thomas Creigh of Greenbrier County, Virginia

HISTORY OF MEDICINE IN GREENBRIER COUNTY 1750-1938[4]

Then as now members of the profession in Greenbrier desired after graduation to keep abreast of the advances being made by the profession and endeavored he promotion and dissemination of medical knowledge by study, and writing for medical journals of the day.

Among these pioneer physicians was Doctor Thomas CREIGH, born July 1812.[5] He graduated with an academic degree from what is now Ohio University at Athens, Ohio. he received his medical degree from one of the most outstanding medical schools of America, and the oldest, the University of Pennsylvania, founded by Benjamin FRANKLIN.

He had as his medical preceptor in Lewisburg another outstanding and distinguished member of the profession, Doctor SIMPKINS.

Dr. CREIGH was a public-spirited citizen and as such represented the county of Greenbrier for several sessions in the Legislature of Virginia. He was a contributor to medical journals and the first president of the Greenbrier Medical Society.

 

JOHN A. PRESTON

While his home was always in his native community, and the place he loved best in all the world, Greenbrier County, the late John A. Preston was in every sense a man of commanding importance and influence through West Virginia. He was a, great lawyer, and was the favorite son of his native county. People respected, trusted, admired and loved him because they knew him to be worthy of all and that he was true to his high ideals, ideals that he translated into action and conduct that fully earned him his high place in county and state.

His father was David R. Preston, a native of Southwestern Virginia, a minister of the Presbyterian faith, who completed his theological studies in Princeton University. David R. Preston probably came to Greenbrier County from Kentucky in the decade of the '30s. He had a charge at Union in Monroe County, but for many years his home was near Lewisburg in Greenbrier County. He married Jeanette Creigh, who represented one of the oldest and best known families in Greenbrier County. The Creighs were prominent Confederates during the Civil war.  Rev. David R. Preston died when a comparatively young man. He and his wife had six children, the late John A. Preston being next to the youngest.

[1] According to the Greenbrier County 1938 Historical Booklet 160th Anniversary 1778 – 1938 “The Old Lewisburg Academy” – Thomas Creigh participated in the Jan 29, 1812 act that incorporated the Lewisburg Academy.  According to the 1874 death record of John Creigh in Fayette Co, W. Virginia – John was the son of Thomas and Margaret Creigh and he was born in Greenbrier County (1803).  I am trying to confirm or deny John Creigh as the brother of James Craig of Fayette County.

[2] No connection made to John Creigh - his death was recorded December 1874 (71 yrs old) in

Fayette County death records. Parents reported to be Thos. and Margaret; wife, Deliah. John

Creigh married Delila McClung 24 March 1830 in Nicholas County, VA.

[3] Sarah F. Creigh is the widow of Doctor Thomas Creigh, son of Thomas and Margaret Creigh.
