Welcome

To the Craig/Craige Line

This is my husband's line

This is such a large line I have had to make 3 pages of it. I tried to cut it down but I just can't do it justice to do so.

This line is so intertwined with Johnston, Blackwood, Logan-Long  lines so many times it is hard to keep things straight.  I sure hope I have them straight.
