States: New Jersey: Salem
I have a possible connection to John and Mary Hunter Craig...I am the 3rd great granddaugther of James Craig. According to the census records, James was born abt 1795 in New Jersey. I found records that he was promoted to seargeant in the Army at Ft. Jessup, Louisiana and was discharged in 1825. From there I found a James Craig enlisting in Pennsylvania, he is a seaman and he was from Salem County, New Jersey and he enlisted for 5 years with an enlistement date of August 1820. James in Louisiana was discharged July 1825.
So, from there I have been searching for Craigs in Salem County. I ran across the name Elias...my James' son, James Jr. had a son who was John Elias Craig, who also had a son John Elias Craig. From various family trees I have found that Elias in New Jersey is the son of John and Mary. I believe that my James may be John and Mary's grandson...possibly the son of William, since my James' first son was William Craig.
I would love to find out if anyone has any information that would help me connect with this family...
