Craig, Elijah

Craig, Elijah a Baptist minister, was born in Virginia about 1740, and converted at the age of twenty-four. In 1765 he began to hold religious services in his own tobacco-house, and continued to preach as opportunity presented. He was once imprisoned for so doing, but nevertheless continued his labors. In 1786 he removed to Kentucky, where he died in 1808. See Lives of Virginia Baptist Ministers, pages 71-73. (J.C.S.)
