     The name Craighead is unmistakably Scotch in origin: Craig or Crag signifying in Scotland any rocky locality. The original immigrant to this country wrote the name as Craghead.    Another spelling variation seen in the records, Creaghead.

     The author of this book first recounts the persecution of the followers of the Episcopalian and Presbyterian faiths in England, Ireland, and Scotland, then begins the genealogy of the Craighead family.  The Rev. Thomas Craighead being the progenitor of the Craighead family in America.

     Thomas Craighead immigrated to New England from Donegal in Ireland, in the year 1715. After stops at Freetown (40 miles south of Boston), Boston, and Delaware, and other places, he was offered the position as Pastor of the Church at Pequa, in Lancaster County, Penn.  There followed several other places where he ministered to the needs of the communities.

     Thomas Craighead had four sons and one daughter.  His wife is identified only as Margaret, the daughter of a Scotch "laird".  The book presents in detail the ancestry and descendants of the Rev. Thomas Craighead.
