The Spirit of Democracy, Woodsfield, Monroe, Ohio. March 19, 1891
Death of Mrs. Elisabeth D. Craig, March 11, in her 83d year.
Mrs. Craig was born in Hartford, Conn., in 1808. Her father, Ezra Driggs, with his family removed to Ohio in 1817 and settled in Woodsfield. Two of her brothers are still living—Benjamin Driggs aged 85 in Ozark and Alfred Driggs aged 80 in Woodsfield.
Mrs. Craig was possessed of a good constitution—her health was usually lithe and vigorous, scarcely ever sick abed. Two weeks ago her seat was occupied in church as had been her want. For long years she had been identified with the Presbyterian church of Woodsfield. Her Christian life and character was eminently consistent with her profession of faith in the gospel.
In March, 1831, she was united in marriage with Mr. William Craig, for many years identified with the Presbyterian church.
These Christian parents reared a family of sons and daughters, settled mostly in this county and who to-day will rise up and call such parents blessed. Truly God seteth the solitary in families and blesses the habitation of the just—the household of the righteous.
