Welcome to My Website
The purpose of this website is to document the history of the Crago and Craigo families with ties to Putnam County, West Virginia. And to provide links to other branches that at present do not seem to connect to the Putnam County family. Please help me to document our shared family history with personal stories, photos and any other useful information you care to share. The original spelling of the surname is Crago, pronounced Kreg-o not Cray-go as many would presume. Because of this many spelling variations have occurred. Crago and Craigo are the two most common among them.
This website would not be possible were it not for the efforts of many individuals, some of which are now deceased. Many of them I never had the privilege of meeting, others only through personal exchanges of E-mail and snail mail have I shared a close bond through our common interest. Listed below is what I presume to be a complete list of everybody that has aided me in my search of Crago history.
Neva Adams, Judy Brown, Freddie Ann Burnett, Bob Connett, Farrel Crago, Kenneth Collett Crago, Steven & Diana Crago, Christina Craigo, Steade Craigo, Harold & Jackie Craigo, Diana Derenberger, Harold Dunn, Judy Harnish, Casey Hawkins, Jean Crago Higginbotham, William Morris Higginbotham, Jim Ingram, Debbie Johnson, Barbara Crago Kay, Toni Kay, Chris Kersey, Anna Lutz, Barbara McKinney, Rick Miller, Cassandra Ryan, Courtney Shinnaberry, Brian Smith, Virgil Stire, G.K. (Ken) Wandling, and Olive Young.
Thank you for all that you have done, it is deeply appreciated.
