Crago Connections

 Crago Connections


This page focuses on the descendants of Greene County pioneer, Thomas Crago.  The name Crago is said to be of Scottish origins and comes from the town of Craigo, near Montrose, Angus (see The Surnames of Scotland).  Other spellings include Crago, Craigo, and Cragow.  No evidence of Scottish connections has been found for this particular family, however.

The following table provides links to various branches of the Crago family. Hopefully, you will be able to find your Crago connection!  As with any work of this nature, this site is certain to contain errors and omissions - please feel free to bring them to my attention.

My day job has kept me from doing updates as frequently as I would like. There are a number of broken links on the page at the moment, but I will be working over the next few days to update them. If someone knows where Maggie Crago's web pages have moved please contact me at [email protected]
