Robert Craig, who married Ann Patterson, was the son of Robert And Susannah
(Woods?) Craig. Robert died young 1806 at their home on the South River in
Augusta County, VA., leaving a large family. Susannah lived a long life,
being a member of the Tn\inkling springs church, then transferring to the
Waynesboro Presbyterian church. I have copies of come of the correspondence
of and about this family, and know the site of the house, now removed.
Robert's grandparents were John Johnston and Sarah Burton who moved to
Asheville, NC, founding the town along with her father, John Burton. Craig
street can be found at Black Mountain, north of Asheville. The parents of
John Johnston Craig were Robert and Susannah Craig. This Robert b. 1713 in
Northern Ireland or Scotland immigrated to America 1721, and from PA to VA
1740. He patented and bought land in Augusta County, which is identifiable.
He was a Tory during the first civil war, called the American Revolution,
because he was active in trade with England in partnership with James Patton,
who was a ship runner.
The parents of Robert and Susannah Craig were William and Janet Craig,
immigrants with their three sons, Robert (above), James and John. Robert went
to the Greenbrier, John to KY. James stayed in Augusta County.
Will be happy to provide anything more you like, and would appreciate your
providing me what you know of descendants of Robert and Ann Patterson Craig.
