Roderick Craig Burial Ground

Harrison Township - Est. 1844

   This burial ground was originally started as a burial ground for the Revolutionary War veteran Roderick Craig who passed away in 1844 and buried on the old Abner Dudley farm. He was born in London, England in 1740, was a Private in Bedford's NC Regiment Revolutionary War. The north side of this little burial ground was cut away back in the 1920s when they widened SR #38 and supposedly several other burials were disturbed. The landowner told me that when he first bought the land the cemetery was completely overgrown and there were other stones that have since disappeared from the burial grounds. He probed around last year and uncovered the one for the Williams family. The Dudley family had a stone erected here to mark the burials of the Abner Dudley family who's stone were either lost or their graves were never marked. There may be other stones yet discovered.
