Home of Capt. Robert Craig at Abingdon, Virginia

Robert Craig home

Captain Robert CRAIG b. 1744 Donegal Township, Lancaser County, PA, d. 1834 Abingdon, VA m. Jane DENNY b. 1750 Brandywine PA, d. 1809 Abingdon VA.

The back of the upper photo reads, “Captain Robert CRAIG’s home, Abingdon, VA. About 1808, Robert CRAIG built the west half of the brick home, which he called Mount Pleasant. This house had five rooms. It is said that the kitchen was entirely separate from the house. In 1857, Judge FULKERSON, then the owner, added three rooms to the west with his law office upstairs. After the home was no longer in the CRAIG family it waas called ‘Retirement.'”

The back of the second photo reads, “This is the rear view of this lovely home. When we visited Abingdon in 1969 we were shown the downstairs. We were told that the frame addition was very old. I think it was most likely part of the original house, perhaps where the kitchen was located. The present owners keep it in beautiful shape. It is furnished with lovely antiques.”

Obtained from Dorothy MITCHELL McCLURE, who had visited the CRAIG home


This is the transcript of the journal kept by Anne Middleton CRAIG MITCHELL of her travel from Abingdon, Washington, Virginia to Randolph County, Missouri in 1836. This was passed to family by John T. MITCHELL of Kansas City, MO, as given by Anne’s son, Rev. J. B. MITCHELL. Mitchell NOLL passed it along to me.

Ann Middleton Craig, b. 1786 March 22 in Abingdon, Virginia, was married to Capt. John Mitchell in 1808 July 26. After his death in 1821, she next married Dr. Stephen Bovell on 1824 Oct 20.

When Ann made her trip to Missouri she was 49 years of age. The trip took two months. She died less than seven months later on 1837 July 12 in Huntsville, Randolph, Missouri.

There was one child, a daughter–Juliain, they named Margaret, born to them. She was a sweet spirited child and I loved her as I did my full sisters. She died in early married life.

A general lightweight summary of where they came from and when, which eventually boiled down into an “Irish” Mitchell woman:

The Mitchells were Irish and emigrated in the 1700s to Virginia.
The Carharts were Cornish and emigrated in the 1600s to New Jersey.
The Dysarts were Irish and emigrated in the 1700s to North Carolina.
The Everetts were I don’t know what, probably English, and were in Connecticut in the 1700s.
The Pettits were whatever and were here in the late 1700s in Delaware. They were probably Anglo-Norman French.
The Butts were whatever and were in Maryland in the late 1700s I guess. I read Butts may be Cornish.
The Craigs were Irish and emigrated in the early 1700s to Pennsylvania.
The Bromwells were Irish. Looking at the history of the name, perhaps they were from England.
The Brooks were, I’m guessing English and I don’t know when they got here but were in South Carolina in the late 1700s.
The Dennys were Irish and were over to Pennsylvanis by the early 1700s.
The Cowdens were Irish and in Pennsylvania by the early 1700s.
The Pattons were already in Pennsylvania in the early 1700s. I guess this is a Scottish name.
The Pyles were English and were over here in the 1600s to Pennsylvania.
The Blacks were Dutch and were in South Carolina by the mid 1700s at least.
The Baldwins were English and were here in the 1600s in Pennsylvania.
The Stewarts were here in the 1700s at least. Perhaps they were Scottish.
The Lords were whatever and emigrated in 1635. I guess they may have been Anglo-Saxon British.
The Phillips were whatever and were already here in the mid 1600s in Massachusetts. I read Phillips is a Welsh name.
