eccentric "Seperate" Baptist preacher. Published a short sketch about his life.


"Joseph Craig (a name almost always preceded by "eccentric"!) was a Baptist preacher "but had less ability in that line than his brothers." When arrested, "Mr. Craig thinking it no dishonor to cheat the devil, as he termed it, slipped off his horse and took to the bushes.They hunted him with dogs, but Asahel like, being light of foot, he made good his retreat."[Semple] Antoinette Craig Matthews wrote that he was eccentric and when arrested, would not walk and had to be carried. He said, "Putting Joe Craig in prison is the Devil's work and I'll not help in it." Railey tells of Richard Blanton, the sheriff who had to arrest and incarcerate Rev. Joseph and later moved to Woodford County where they became friends and died about the same time. Spencer says that a crowd followed the arrested preachers on their way to jail in 1768 and that Joseph "cried out in a stentorian voice: 'Arise ye dead and come to judgement!' whereupon many person dropped down as if pierced through the heart." He relates other anecdotes also. When a ferryman decided not to charge him but to ask for his prayers, Joseph would not leave until he had discharged his debt fervently. Lewis tried to dissuade him from preaching, saying he'd only converted one person in 20 years. His response was that he was "ready to labor twenty more for the salvation of another." Called to see a very sick niece, he asserted that "if you die now it will be the meanest thing you ever did in your life"; she recovered to raise her children. These stories and others are told in his handwritten Journal (which I have a copy of)."

"From A HISTORY OF KENTUCKY BAPTISTS, by J. H. Spencer [1885]. JOSEPH CRAIG is supposed to have been the first and only pastor of the Separate Baptist church on the Head of Boones creek. Mr. Craig, though a preacher of small gifts and marked eccentricities, was a man of zeal and piety, was among the early pioneers to the great West, and deserves to be remembered by those who love the cause he aided in establishing in the face of danger and death, in the savage-infested wilderness of the Mississippi valley.


Joseph Craig was the seventh child, and fifth son, of Toliver Craig, and a younger brother of the well-known Lewis and Elijah Craig. He was born in Orange county, Virginia, about the year 1747. In early life he, with all his father's family, was converted to Christianity, and was baptized under the ministry of Samuel Harris and Dutton Lane. He commenced exhorting sinners to repent soon after his conversion. With other Baptist ministers of his day, he was called on to endure hardness for the Master's cause. At one time, he, with several other preachers, was arrested at Guinea's Bridge church, in Spottsylvania
county, Virginia, by virtue of a warrant issued by a magistrate. On his way to the magistrate's house, in custody of an officer, "Mr. Craig, thinking it NO DISHONOR TO CHEAT THE DEVIL, as he termed it, slipped off the horse and took to the bushes. They hunted him with dogs, but Asahel like, being light of foot, he
made good his retreat." [SEMPLE'S HISTORY]. Chasing Baptist preachers with dogs, as our sportsmen chase foxes now, seems to have been a favorite amusement of the Episcopalian virginian of the last century. Speaking of Joseph Craig, his biographer says: "I do not recollect, though a zealous preacher, that his persecutors ever got him into prison. He had a method to baffle them. He was once preaching at a place, and the officers came after him. Stepping out at a back door he ran into a swamp, supposing he was safe, but they took his track with a gang of dogs. To evade the dogs, he betook himself to a tree, from which his pursuers shook him down as if he was a wild beast, and demanded his going with them to court. After reasoning with them awhile he refused to go. But they forced him on a horse, and perhaps tied his hands. On the way he reasoned thus:
Good men ought not to got to prison, and if you will put so good a man as Jo Craig in prison, I will have no hand in it, and threw himself off the horse, and would neither ride nor walk; behaving perhaps as David did, before Achish, King of Gath. -- 1 Sam. xxi: 10. They let him go." [TEN CHURCHES, by John Taylor].


Joseph Craig came to Kentucky at a very early date -- perhaps with his brother lewis and his traveling church, in 1781. He was never more than a moderate exhorter, but he maintained and unblemished reputation, and was zealous and diligent in his calling. "No man in the bounds of our acquaintance," says his biographer, "manifested more zeal in the cause of religion than Joseph Craig. At times his zeal seemed intemperate, as if the man had not common sense, and yet there was something in him more original than was found in other men." He was unsuited to the pastoral office, and probably occupied but little time in that position. But he was a faithful "helper to the truth" according to his ability. He labored in the ministry about fifty-nine years, and at the age of about eighty years, went to receive his reward.


Mr. Craig avoided speculation, but was prudent and diligent in his temporal business, and acquired a good property. He raised six sons and four daughters, and "taught them all the laudable habit of industry. Find a child of his where you may, he is surrounded with affluence, and is of respectable standing among men. Nearly all of them have also a place in the church of Christ." [TEN CHURCHES, by John Taylor].


Many anecdotes, some of which are still familiarly repeated, have been related of the eccentric Joseph Craig, of which the following appear to be well authenticated. On one occasion when pack-saddles were in much demand for conveying goods along the narrow traces through the wilderness, on pack-horses, Mr. Craig was preaching to a congregation assembled in the woods, when casting his eyes upward he said: "Brethren, there is a fork that would make a good pack-saddle," and then continued his discourse without making a pause. Once, after crossing a stream in a ferry-boat, and offering to pay the ferryman, the man of
the oar said, "I will charge you nothing but to pray for me." Mr. Craig invited him ashore. "Not now," said the ferryman, " I am busy -- pray for me some other time." "No," replied Mr. Craig, "I will not go away indebted to you." The ferryman yielded, and Mr. Craig offered up a fervent prayer for the salvation of his soul.


After Mr. Craig had been trying to preach about a score of years his brother Lewis, fearing that he would only injure the holy cause he was advocating, attempted to dissuade him from making any further effort to preach, saying to him: "You have been trying to peach twenty years, and I have never known of your being instrumental in the conversion of but one person." "Thank God," said Mr. Craig, "if Christ has saved one soul by me, in twenty years, I am ready to labor twenty more for the salvation of another." Being called to see a sick niece, after offering a fervent prayer for her recovery, he took her by the hand and said: Now, Hannah, don't die. You have an good husband and many fine children, some of them yet to raise. If you die now it will be the meanest thing you ever did in your life. " When Mrs. Graves recovered she asked her uncle what he meant. "Well," said he, "I was afraid you would become willing to die, and I feared if you did the Lord would take you away, and I did not want you to die and leave your husband and children."

According to instrument signed Nov 12 1819 by Robert Martin and Elizabeth Lindsay, executors of estate of Jean Lindsay. She had seven children and they specified they should receive 3/7ths of Jean Lindsay's share. (Notarial Book B, St. Francisville, West Feliciana Parish, La.)


"James Winter, G. T. Norwood's grandfather, was born July 6, 1770, the son of Robert Winter, a native of Ireland, and his wife, Mary McCants, who lived and died in South Carolina. Mr. Winter was the only one of his family who lived to maturity and married. He was reared in South Carolina, and died in this state, January 8, 1837. During the War of 1812 he was not allowed to become a soldier, being commanded to remain at home to see that the families were cared for whose heads were obliged to be at the scene of battle. He followed farming all his life, and was considered one of the best and most successful farmers of his day, always keeping free from debt and constantly adding something to his worldly store. His distinguishing trait was devotion to his family and his home. He was an old time democrat, but when not suited with the candidates of that party he did not hesitate to vote the whig ticket."
