|D. Blean||RE: Grizell Craig|
As to why the Craigs were living in Hopewell, I assume it's because son Abraham was nearby. He may be the Abraham Craig who in 1830 was on the census for Madison, Perry County, Ohio. But I'm not absolutely sure this is the same person. Abraham Craig attended Dickinson College in 1795 and went to Kentucky early in his career. But these Presbyterians headed north because they were offended by slavery. It may be a whole band of people followed Abraham Craig and thus the Craigs were part of a community of like-minded people, many from Pennsylvania and originally Ireland. (The entire Craig family would have been born in Ireland since they didn't arrive until 1793).

I'd sure like to find his burial also. About 1823 there was a split in the church and he was no longer pastor at Jonathan's Creek. His career ended rather badly and by about 1828 or 29 it was over and he died a few years later. The following was from the Presbyterian Examiner:
The Second Presbytery of Ohio The stated Semiannual meeting of this Judicatory was held on the 6th Inst. in Jonathan's creek church. Besides the ordinary business, Mr. B. Waddle delivered a lecture and popular sermon as trials for ordination --and assuredly every member of Presbytery had reason to say of this first fruit of our Theological Seminary at Pittsburgh, the fruit was sweet to our taste. These specimens of trial being sustained, Presbytery proceeded to ordain and instal Mr. Waddle stated Pastor of the united Congregations of Zanesville, Jonathan's Creek, Rush creek, and Thronville --Mr. Waddle is a young man of great zeal, and the divine Providence has furnished to him a field of great labour and of great prospect--May his life and health be precious in the sight of him who has appointed him. ........The pleasing scene, of one, eminently promising, added to our little Presbyterial band, which only numbered four, was not without its counterpart in some degree.--The case of the Rev. Abraham Craig, which had been for years before Synod and the Presbytery terminated, at our last meeting, in his suspension from the holy ministry--His suspension was in accordance with instructions, conditionally given by the Synod at its last meeting, to Presbytery. Synod required of Mr. Craig submission to the jurisdiction of Presbytery, which for some time he had been treating with contempt. This submission Mr. Craig was called upon by Presbytery to yield--on his proving refractory Presbytery proceeded to pass an act of suspension--whereby Mr. Craig is divested of all authority whatever to exercise the functions of a gospel Minister. It is truly heart sickening to see a man, favored with many rare opportunities to qualify himself for the Ministry--and by the order that Christ hath established in his church actually for years employed in this sacred work--and in the evening of life become so trifling, worldly-minded and refractory as to compel that same authority which clothed him with official livery to divest him of it.

Thank you so much for the correction on burial location, I really appreciate it.
|gloria leslie||location on John Foster d. 1850|
thank you so much for taking the time and effort to add these graves in Ohio.
Sure we can dig up matching relatives. My Leslie's, Porter's and Foster married everybody in Preble Co.!!
I have searched many resources and other have physical searched for burial of John Foster 1773-1850. His last residence was 1850 in household of David McDill. Also, Elizabeth Porter Leslie Foster b.1773 d. 26 Jul 1848, a Fairfield resident. Her brother was the pastor at Hopewell but she and John were to have moved to new church at Fairfield.
Any help would be greatly appreciated,
