Deleting memorials
hi William,

To delete the duplicate, go to 121723438. Look at the top left; under the tab Edit, you'll see the word 'Delete.' That'll do it.
If I can be of help to you with anything else, just let me know.

All one big family
John Kirby & Mary Ann Whorton are my 4th great grandparents. John Warford & Mary Polly Baxter are my 4th great grandparents. George Craig & Charity Humble Hinch are my 4th great grandparents. Are you related to my other 4th great grandparents in Howard County? They are David Spotts & Mary Polly Baylor. So I'm related to every person you mentioned. Who was John Wesley Craig's wife?

Here's a recap so far:

Augustus Scott Craig & John Wesley Craig were brothers. Augustus married a Kirby. Augustus' son John Samuel James Craig married the daughter of a Warford. John Wesley's son married a Warford, the daughter of a Kirby. Now if we could just connect my Warfords & Kirbys to your Warfords & Kirbys. Only 3 generations ago, our ancestors knew exactly how they were all related.

Wow! The plot thickens! John Samuel James Craig (b. 29 June 1849) married Margaret Ann Spotts (b. 23 Feb. 1859), the daughter of Margaret Ann (Warford) Spotts (b. 28 Aug. 1824). All 3 of those families lived in Howard County at some time. Margaret Ann Warford's parents were John Warford (b. 1 Jun 1798) & Mary "Polly" Baxter (b. 22 Oct. 1805). Who are the parents of Thomas Ballew Warford (b. 31 Jan. 1828)? And Martha Ann Kirby (b. 11 Jan 1834)? It's quite possible that besides our Craig ancestors, we also have common Kirby ancestors and common Warford ancestors.

Craig / Kirby
Okay, 4th Cousin, once removed, so how do you have Kirby ancestors? Mine come from Augustus' wife, Mary Ann Kirby. Did we have one of those cases where 2 sisters marry 2 brothers?

John Samuel James Craig
Hi, Cousin. My 3rd great grandparents are Augustus Scott Craig (1821-1909) and Mary Ann (Kirby) Craig (1826-1886/1896). Their son is John Samuel James Craig. Since you're descended from both the Craigs and the Kirbys, JSJ Craig should be your great grandfather's sibling, not his first cousin. Who are your father, grandfather, great grandfather, 2nd great grandfather, 3rd great grandfather, and 4th great grandfather?

RE: William Craig
William Craig the Mountain man and Fur trapper
allowed a donation land claim on the Nez Perce
Reservation and considered the first settler in Idaho. The descendents have been doing DNA testing to see if it can be determined who his parents are which are unknown his father has been narowed down to one of four brothers his Grand and Great Grand parents we are fairly sure of through the dna testing, regret I am on the maternal side so my dna would be of no help.
I do not have copies of the dna records but do have other documentation and there is a number of books that refer to William, there is confusion between my William and two other William Craigs that were Hudson Bay company men
at Ft. Nez Perce and elsewhere, but no relation
to my Craig who was American Fur Company and Rocky Mtn. Fur, incidently his brother's-in-law were Joseph Meek and Robert Newell.
