They had the following children:

Do you know if any descendents of these male Craig's have tested their DNA?

At least 3 direct male descendants of William Craig, b. ca. 1735-1740 resident of Granville County and Burke County NC, have been tested and are part of the Craig Family DNA project. I don't know if any descendants of John Craig, also from Granville County NC, have been tested. I'd be interested in finding male descendants of John Craig to have Y-chromosome DNA testing performed. I'd also like to find other descendants of William Craig to have them join the Craig Family DNA project. Thanks.

Thanks for your reply. I am very interested in this family line, as we share common ancestry through Elijah Craig and Susannah Keller. I have different dates for some of the births and deaths that you cited, and I would be happy to forward more information on the extended Craig families to you. If there are any direct male descendants of your Craig line that would like to have DNA-Y chromosome testing done, I'd like to discuss with you also. You can email me at to discuss further. Thank you.
