Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been involved in family history research since about 1994 and have devoted the majority of my time to it in recent years. My focus areas include the U.S. (especially Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey, Maryland, Delaware, Ohio, and Indiana), southern Italy (especially Basilicata), the U.K., Ireland, and parts of the former Russian republic, including Ukraine, Belarus, and Latvia. I evaluate sources of genealogical evidence carefully and value the work of volunteers on FindAGrave, especially for providing photographs of grave markers and for transcriptions of birth, death, and burial information that are clues for pursuing original records. I appreciate the work of countless volunteers in making more records and information available and enjoy paying it forward by helping others who are researching their own family histories.

You may use data and photographs posted to memorials I manage without requesting permission provided you give full credit for the material posted and do not use these for commercial purposes. As FindAGrave suggests, I will not accept newspaper obituaries and other copyrighted material for a biography, but I will accept extracted information with a source citation and excerpts from materials in the public domain.

RE: Craig Connections
Hi Lesley,

Thank you for contacting me. I am not actually a blood relative of the Craig's, but only connected through marriage. My g grandmother's sister married William P. Craig, grandson of William Craig and Sarah Van Pelt. William Craig, husband of Sarah Van Pelt, was the older brother of Thomas James Craig and another son of John Craig and Sarah Ann Cooley. I wish I could be of more help to you!

They are right next to each other as is Robert who I also put on. I didn't remember Row H E (meaning East) when I put on Nicholas.
Have a good Memorial Day.

Hi Sophia,
You were right. Nicholas was there too and needed
a little weed wacking too. Glad I could find him.

You are very welcome. The next time I am at St.
Catharine's I will look for Nicholas.

You are very welcome. Culy does not ring a bell with me but now I'll definitely notice it if I see it. I let you know if I come across anything😀
Added by MollyBailey on Aug 04, 2015 5:58 PM
Absolutely. I just need to check, I know we are related to Dunhams but I think the ones in Pioneer are pretty far removed. I'll transfer them now 😀
