SLIGO CHARLES FREEMONT CRAIG

Services in memory of Charles Freemont Craig, 83, well known Sligo farmer, who died March 12, 1947, were conducted from the family home, Saturday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock. The Rev. E. D. Crawford, pastor of the Presbyterian church, conducted the service. Interment followed in the Sligo cemetery, under the direction of Guy M. Hawk. He had been in declining health for a number of years.

Mr. Craig was born in Madison township, Clarion county, November 25, 1863, son of the late James and Mary (McCain) Craig. On August 27, 1885, he married Minnie Mae Anderson who died in October 1936.

Mr. Craig followed the farming business for many years. Later in life he operated the Sligo grist mill. He was a member of the United Presbyterian church.

He is survived by the following children: Mrs. Jessie Hoover, Sligo, R.D. ; Mrs. Nina McMaster, St. Petersburg; Mrs. Mabel Weeter, Sigo; Mrs. Martha Stewart, Meadvile; Hobart Craig, Rimersburg; William Craig, Knox, R.D.; Ira Craig, Cleveland, Ohio; Mrs. Eva Belle McClaine, East Brady; Mrs. Mae McCall, Rimersburg, R.D.; Herman Craig and Mrs. Alma Heeter, both of Sligo.
