Thank you for taking a picture of my aunt's grave. I have been busy taking care of family and I have not been able to keep up. The picture is much appreciated.
|Tonda||Carrie Burke Headstone|
Hello--Carrie Burke is a cousin of my grandmother. I notice that her death date is not listed on her headstone.
Do you know whom I might contact about getting it added to her headstone. If it is not too expensive, I would like to have it added.

I ended up spending quite a big of time trying to learn more about Rev. Craig. I suspect he was accompanied by his mother and sister when he went to Kentucky and then to Ohio. Perhaps other friends from Pennsylvania accompanied them as they looked for new places to settle. It was because of slavery that they moved to Ohio. I can't imagine that Rev. Craig lived very far away from his mother and sister in Ohio. keep wondering how they were supported. Then the Rev. Craig's whole career goes down in disgrace! "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." Sounds like he was a stubborn old goat. It took several years of hearings for the Presbyterians to get rid of him. Wish we knew where he was buried. He and his family members really would have been early Ohio pioneers.

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).
