Craig Family Bible

King James Version of the Bible

Family records recorded in the Craig Family Bible, provided by a Sallie Attaway Craig descendent, have been a great help to those of us researching the Attaway family. I have tried to be precise in transcribing the contents as they were generously provided to me.

There is a wealth of information¬† that is invaluable in helping sort out the ancestry of John William Attaway and Sallie Attaway Craig.¬† The Bolding family branch and other information from John’s father’s other marriages, as well as his own death are recorded as well.
