Widow of Rev. John Craig; died in her 86th year

This information from Find A Grave member #47370062:
In the book "History of the United Presbyterian Church of Big Spring, Newville, Pa., 1764-1878, James Brown Scouller (brother-in-law of Robert Blean whose mother was Mary Craig) wrote: "The church of Big Spring did not allow itself to remain long without a bishop, so in 1793, a call was given to the Rev. John Craig, who had just arrived from Ireland. This call was at once accepted, and he entered upon his work. In the spring of 1794, Mr. Smith came to install him, and found him dead ; so he buried him on the very day, on which he was to have been installed.... He was about fifty years of age, and left a widow and three children. His son, Abraham, became a minister and long preached in the Associate Reformed Church in Kentucky and Ohio. One daughter married Robert Blean, son of one of the original elders, and a number of her descendants are still in this church ; one was an elder and another now is. The other daughter (Grizell) died unmarried, only a few years ago, at a great age, in Preble county, Ohio."
