Craig County Virginia

Map of Va: Craig CountyCraig County was formed in 1851 from portions of Botetourt, Roanoke, Giles, and Monroe counties. The new county was named in honor of Robert Craig (1792-1852), who served in both the House of Delegates as well as the U.S. Congress. In 1853 parts of Monroe and Montgomery counties were also added to Craig, and in 1856 portions of Alleghany and Monroe counties were placed under Craig's jurisdiction. In 1858 part of Giles County was transferred to Craig. The final boundary alteration came in 1880 when two farms on the Giles-Craig line were transferred to Craig's jurisdiction. In 1864, Union cavalry stabled their horses and troopers in the courthouse, and damaged some records. The county's first deed book (A) was burned, and some marriage records were destroyed.
