Francis CRAFT 1800-187? PA, OH, IN & IL

Hello to everyone,

This week I am concentrating on Francis Craft, son of Thomas Craft of Washington County, PA. Francis is allegedly the son of Sarah Braddock of same county. He was born ca. 1800 in said county and moved with Thomas & Sarah in the mid-to-late 1810s to OH then IN. Francis married (1) Polly "Mary" Hougham, alleged daughter of Jonathan and Nancy Davis Hougham, in Fayette County, IN February 14, 1822. They became the parents of 11 known children; Jonathan, Thomas, Nancy, Amziah Morgan, William Francis, Sarah, Aaron Hougham, Eliza C, Francis A, Mary E, and David.

Mary died in 1850 and in Dec. 1850 Francis married (2) Cynthia Ann COLE. They added 3 more children to the family, Daniel J, Eli and Hannah M. In 1878 Cynthia is listed as the landowner in the 1878 Prarie Twp, Edgar, IL tax list leading me to believe Thomas had died. In 1880 she is a widow.

Census information for Francis is as follows:
1810 - Washington, PA
1820 - Warren, OH
1830 - Rush, IN
1840 - Hancock, IN
1850 - Parke, IN
1860 - Parke, IN
1870 - Edgar, IL

My unanswered questions for Francis are:

Date of birth?
Date of death?
Place of burial?
Did he have a will? (if so I'd like to obtain a copy)
Am I missing any children??

If you have any information or resources I can use, please let me know.

thank you,

Jennifer Maillet
