(contributed by Patricia J Vorenberg) (Note: I'm not positive Mary Jane Craik and Dr. James Craik are brother/sister due to difference in ages and regions born but they are no doubt of the same line and why I am showing them as kinned) ============== Dr. James Craik mentioned in below will: Charles County Maryland Will Book AH-9, 1785-1788; Page 188. Doct Walter H. Jenifer's Will. I, Walter Hanson Jenifer of CC, am of sound and disposing mind, memory, and understanding, and wanting to settle my worldly affairs, make this, my will. First l want my debts and funeral charges paid. To my wife Ann Jenifer - in fee simple, all that undivided moiety of 1000 acres of land lying in Fauquier County, Virginia, deeded by Daniel McCarty and Sinalse McCarty to Peter Waggoner and myself as tenants in common, as may more fully appear by to sd deed.

I also give Daniel my shares in the Patowmack Company. Also my 2 breeding mares and their 2 colts. To my brother Warren Dent Jenifer - a pair of good young riding horses and 30 guineas, to be furnished him by my executors when he arrives to the age of 21 years, To my father Daniel Jenifer Sr - all my wearing apparel, all my stock of work horses, cattle, hogs, and sheep, excepting the hogs for the present year's killing.

I want my private papers taken out of the hands of James Russell as soon as possible after my death, by my executors, and my accounts settled with him, making him reasonable allowance for his services. Executors: my father and my brother, Daniel Jenifer Jr, Signed Dec 10, 1785 - W.H. Jenifer. Wit - William Craik, Val. Peers, Nich5 Peers. Probated Feb 4, 1786 by Daniel Jenifer Doctr Daniel Jenifer, executors, and by the oaths of witnesses William Craik, Valentine Peers, and Nicholas Peers. ============ Researcher Michael Marshall brought up the possibility that Dr. James Craik was married previously to a Smallwood due to some land transactions in Charles Co., Maryland. I find it doubtful and think that any connection to the Smallwood's comes through their marriage to the Moore's. The Moore's and the Ewell's do intermarry. James Ewell born abt. 1688 married Elizabeth Moore. James Ewell's father is Thomas Ewell born 1660-1665 England (married Mary Bennett) and I think that Thomas Ewell born 1660-1665 England and Dr. Charles Ewell born abt. 1660 England are probably brothers. It's my opinion that any connection to the Charles Co. Smallwood/Moore line comes through the Ewell's and not the Craik's.
