I am looking for information on James G. CRAIG born Secember 8, 1819 near Red Clay TN (Son's death certificate said James was born in Georgia) he died about 1859 probably in Washington County, Arkansas. James G. CRAIG is son of John CRAIG mother unknown. James G. CRAIG married on January 16, 1838 in Washington County, AR to America SPEARS. America had 4 husbands, she married to James PHIPPS after the death of James CRAIG.

In a LUTTRELL article in FLASHBACK it referred to James G. CRAIG as a Justice of the Peace. I would like to find out more about that

. Children of James G. CRAIG are: Ellender CRAIG married to Thomas F. WELDON, William CRAIG, Mary CRAIG, Elizabeth CRAIG, George CRAIG, John W. CRAIG, James Edward CRAIG married to Elivira "Jane" LUTTRELL (this is my line). Caleb CRAIG and Nancy CRAIG.

Any information on any of these families would be very appreciated. I am willing to share what I know.
