Hello William Craig 1851-1952 was my 1st. CousinX4 removed. I live in Queensland Australia. I am very interested in finding out about the Craig Family. A Mary Craig 1819-1897 married William Hatty in Australia. I have a very large Family Tree on the Hatty's. Steve Berry Cairns Queensland Australia.

Hello Steve
It would seem that we are related, though very distantly
There are many people here who have been working on the Craig history so I hope we can help a bit
We do have a Mary Craig who married a John William Hatty.
Our information says Mary was the daughter of William James Craig Elizabeth Miller. born 19 May 1811 in Listullycurran, Dromore, Down, Ireland and died 26 Sept 1897 in Kyabram, Victoria, Australia.
John William Hatty was the son of Alexander Hatty and Jane McKendry. born about 1820 in Bushmills, County Antrim Ireland and died 10 April 1900 in Kyabram, Victoria, Australia [Marriage date & place is unknown]
We have 8 children listed to them; Alexander 1844, William John 1846, Mary 1848, Elizabeth 1850, Ann Jane 1853, Margaret 1855, Sarah 1858, and Maria 1860
I think we are talking about the same people, and would love to exchange information with you and add it to our tree

All your information is correct. I had Mary being born in 1819 though there was some doubt so 1811 is correct. William John Hatty is my Great Great Grandfather.The 8 children listed above as Hatty's had around 60-70 children between them. My Grandfather had 14 so there are many many people in the Family Tree. I'm also interested in any of the Craig's who were in the Wars especially WW1 as many of my relatives from long ago fought for the Empire. I have quite a lot of photos as well. Maybe we could swap E-Mails of FB profiles. My main Family research is done on Ancestry but I am also on My Heritage. I applied to join Stephen Craig's Site a few days ago.

One of Alexander Hatty's (born 1844) Maria Craig's son has a Granddaughter whose entire Family Tree can be accessed on Google by anyone in the world.

The granddaughter's name is Martha Hatty (Buerckner) her husband August Buerckner.
I am a member of Stephen Craig's My Heritage Tree now. I'll suggest to him he joins their Site (I am a member).
