20 June 1895 - The Monroe Journal says that Lut Craig, colored, who lives in a about one mile of Waxhaw, Union county, is an example to his race as a farmer. He runs a one horse farm, which he has bought and stocked by money he made as a laborer. He has bought no meat in two years, no flour in four years nor any corn in five years. He sold corn this year. He reads the newspaper and sends his children to school.
