    1. [CRAIG-CANADA] John CRAIG, b. c. 1760

    3. POST re John CRAIG I have been long-seeking good data re the origin etc. of my John CRAIG, whom we strongly believe was from the Carolinas or thereabouts. He was probably born about 1760, served during the War in the areas of Charleston, Moncks Corner, & Eutaw Spring, SC. He ended up in a British regiment - the 84th, sometime prior to 25 June 1782. He was Discharged and he & the Regiment disbanded at Ft. Edward, Windsor, Nova Scotia on 10 Oct 1783. He & others from the regiment received Land Grants in New Brunswick. Many more as well in Nova Scotia & Prince Edward Island. My John died here in Bonny River, Charlotte Co., New Brunswick, in 1833. I have complete history of John’s pioneer years in N.B. and his family from 1783 until now. I am very hopeful that someone out there can & will connect and contact me re John CRAIG, Patriot/Loyalist!

    3. Hello Fraser, I am not Amy but I am Ann Burton and for several years I have published Craig-Links which is for all Craigs everywhere. Very few of us are related, but the surname Craig is of interest to all. My own Craigs were Scots-Irish, into PA before the Rev. War. Moved to SC before the Rev. War and fought from there. Later they went to KY and then began to split up, mine going to Indiana. Nice "talking" to you.

    3. I'm reposting this information originally posted several years ago: I'm researching CRAIG from Three Rivers (Tres Rivieres), Province of Quebec, Canada. My Ggrandmother, Annie R. Craig, b.March 10, 1879 in above place, and died in Boston, MA on August 26, 1943. I'm not sure when she came to Boston, but I know she was married there to Joseph ROBINSON (b. Litchfield, ME) in 1897, and that her parents and some siblings came also, as they are buried in New Calvary Cemetery in Boston. Rumor in my family is that some of the CRAIGs were "theatre people" and lived in Somerville, MA. Annie's parents were David B.(Benjamin?) CRAIG (b.@ 1847 in Canada?, d.1914 in Boston) and Marie (Mary) DUSAULT (b. @ 1852, d.1913, Boston). They were married @1868. Other children of David and Marie/Mary were: - Benjamin, b.1868/69, possibly in CT. - Horace - Henry S., b. 1893 in MA - Archibald - Nellie, b. 1888 in MA (married NUGENT) Any help appreciated. Also, any suggestions for how to research in Three Rivers Canada without reading or understanding French is appreciated as well! thank you!

    1. [Craig-Canada] Morrison Barclay Craig and wife Elizabeth
    2. Ann Amor
    3. Morison Barclay CRAIG was born in Kilmarnock, Ayrshire to Hugh Morton CRAIG and Maggie KERR BARCLAY his wife. He married Elizabeth (nee ALLAN previously CALLAGHAN) - known as Bessie - in 1921 in Glasgow and they moved to Alloa where they had 3 daughters. Morison, a mining engineer, came out to Quebec, Canada to his brother and in October 1931was joined by his wife and daughters - Bessie CRAIG aged 32, Margaret Taylor CRAIG aged nearly 10, Lilias Kerr CRAIG aged 6, and Elizabeth CRAIG aged 5yrs. who sailed over from Alloa on SS Letitia. Their destination was Staff House, Noranda, Quebec, where they were said to join Morison. Can anyone tell me what Staff House, Noranda would have been? Would this fit in with Morison being a mining engineer? It is said that Morison then deserted his family so what became of them - or him? Ive never found his death and he never came back to Scotland to claim an inheritance either. If anyone can shed light on this family I would be absolutely delighted to hear from them and would gladly do English research in return for information! Many thanks, Ann (in Lancs, UK)

    1. [Craig-Canada] Craig/Woodley
    2. Ann Amor
    3. Matthew Kerr CRAIG b. 1892 Kilmarnock, Ayrshire married Marjorie Phyllis WOODLEY (daughter of Samuel WOODLEY of Quebec) in January 1918 at Bexhill, England whilst he was a serving officer (Lieutenant) in 42nd Battalion, Canadian Infantry, and she a hospital nurse at 15 Canadian Hospital, Taplow, Bucks. They had children born Oct 1918 (a daughter) and Oct 1922 (a son Matthew Taylor CRAIG born at Bergerville, Canada.) Then a son Dr Hugh Morton CRAIG who died 1977. I believe they also adopted one of Matthews nieces, daughter of Morison Barclay Craig and his wife Elizabeth Allen who had 3 daughters. At Marjories death in 1982 the granddaughter Susan CRAIG was present. Does anyone have knowledge of this family or suggest ways in which I might trace them further please? Many thanks, Ann (in Lancs, UK)

    2. Ann Amor
    3. Hi List, Matthew T. Craig, son of Marjorie Phyllis Craig (Nee Woodley from Quebec) and Matthew Kerr Craig (who was born in Kilmarnock, Ayrshire) was the Principal of Westmount Park School, Verdun, Quebec City. Anyone have any connections? His mother Marjorie died 1982 (oh, if only I had known that then!!) and his fathers death I have yet to find. He had a brother Dr. Hugh M (probably Morton) Craig who died in August 1977 but I have no details. The informant on Marjories death was a Susan Craig, I think a granddaughter. I am directly descended from Matthew's brother Hugh Morton Craig who lived in Kilmarnock, Scotland all his life. I have an extended family tree I am happy to share with anyone as I am sure that I must have living relations in Quebec as the above family lived there a great many years. Also looking for Morison Barclay Craig (brother to Matthew Kerr Craig and a mining engineer) and his wife Elizabeth and 3 young daughters who stayed with Matthew and Marjorie in 1934 when they emigrated to Quebec. Whatever happened to them?? Happy to hear from anyone and thanks for listening, Ann (in Lancs, UK)

    3. I am searching for a marriage for Charles Craig and Jane or Jeanie or even Elizabeth Jane Smirl(e) around 1877-79 in North Gower, Carsonby, Ottawa, Stittsville, Morewood or somewhere in the Dundas, Carleton county area. Charles was the son of William Craig (son of Elizabeth Moffatt and Thomas Craig) and Eliza Carson (daughter of John Carson and Mary Cummings) of Carsonby, where he was born. They are part of the huge Craig family who immigrated in the 1830-40 era to North Gower. Both were of Irish descent. Also, the couple had two children: Nellie (b. 1879) and Viola.(1891) born in Ontario (Ottawa?, Carsonby? North Gower? etc.) . ----- Original Message ----- From: <Oglemjo@aol.com> To: <CRAIG-CANADA-L@rootsweb.com> Sent: Monday, April 21, 2003 7:04 PM Subject: [Craig-Canada] Good to be home > Hi everyone, > Just arrived home from the very hot weather of Florida.

    3. Hi Marva You mentioned that you are relatively new to this and that your father was in WW1. Maybe you already know this, but some people on the mailing list may not know. Many WW1 vets are listed online at the National Archives. If you plug in a name, you will atleast get a serial number. But attestation papers are available for most Craigs. Not all of the letters for all surnames in the alphabet are finished. Attestation papers can be a wealth of info.

But throough the computer and posting every site I can find I have found a cousins wife in New Zealand. a cousin in Scotland, one in England, and her son, who sent me a 6 page letter with many stories of the family that have been passed down on that side of the pond. I have sent for many documents and now have 4 generations of Craigs. My family came to Canada via Halifax and Quebec. My father came about 1915, my mother 1924 ?, They retrned to Scotland at some point and then returned again to Canada and my brother & sister came later. Came to US later and settled here and then there was "ME". I sure hope this site gets going then we will be all able to try and piece some p! ieces together. Marva

I have assembled a bunch of names, most of which I know I'm not related to. But I am working on a theory that many of the early New Brunswick Craigs were related. Many coincidences, but no proof.
