Craig Ihrig
IHRIG, Craig - On October 1, 2007, Craig, devoted mother and grandmother passed away peacefully at home
among her family. She was 82 years old. As a young girl, Craig loved music, art and poetry. She attended
Westridge School for Girls in Pasadena, where she had the opportunity to sing under renowned conductor
Howard Swann. After graduating, she became a featured soloist on radio station KWKW Pasadena, singing
popular arias and art songs. Craig was a mother of three girls. Throughout their family life, she and her daughters
enjoyed being involved in a variety of performing groups as well as community musical theater. In daily life, she
couldn't help but convey her love of all things beautiful through her passion for her garden as well as her
interest in antiques and interior design. Her lovely home was always rich in color, warmth, and life, with
interesting things to delight her grandchildren in every nook and cranny. Our mom will be greatly missed by all
who loved her, but she leaves a legacy of beauty and appreciation for the arts for her children and grandchildren
to carry on. She is survived by her daughters Tracy Leighton and husband Lloyd of Yuba City, Allison



Pg. 9, 3rd paragraph, 3rd line – William Armitage Staunton was an Episcopal minister,
not a Presbyterian minister.
Pg. 10, 1st paragraph – Mary Evans had definitely been William Staunton’s
housekeeper. Rev. William Armitage Staunton, D.D. states this directly in his
“Genealogical & Historical Notices”. Edwin Staunton’s version of this [pg. 93] differs
from the copy of William’s version that I have in the Staunton Family Archives, in
William’s own handwriting. There are about 26 lines that are “missing” in Edwin’s
version, where her being the housekeeper is stated. Interestingly, you also quote
Edwin on pg. 217, in paragraph 5, with part of the information contained in the
“missing” 26 lines.
Pg. 24, note 21, last paragraph – there is no known connection between Thomas, the
son of William and Mary Staunton, and “Joseph Staunton” in the 1840 census
records. [This also appears on pg. 217, paragraphs 3-5, notes for Thomas]
Pg. 25, note 22 – Have you located the actual records for the voyage of “The
Lancaster” in September 1818, from Liverpool bound for Philadelphia? The surname
may also have been spelled “Stanton” at that time.
Detailed Genealogy for Staunton Family




Pg. 216 & 221, #1 – William Stanton/Staunton was born on January 11, 1775,
according to Edwin Craig, pg. 15, 44 and 71.
Pg. 216, 3rd paragraph – I am presently researching where William Stanton was born.
It is more probable that the reference to “Nottingham” denotes the origin of this
family line, rather than the actual place where William was born.
Pg. 216, 3rd paragraph – Edwin Staunton [pg. 43] gives 2 possibilities for William
Stanton’s wife’s maiden name: Anne Parry or Anne Shone. Edwin [pg 71] again gives
the 2 possibilities, but lines through “Parry”, as though to indicate that he had settled
on “Shone” as her name. You have spelled the surnames “Perry” and “Strone”.
Pg. 216, 221 & 237 - all the children were named “Stanton” until William, father and
son, changed their surname to “Staunton” after Mary Armitage’s death.
Pg. 216, 221 & 237 – George Stanton’s death date is given in William A. Staunton’s
“Genealogical & Historical Notices” as “14 October 1808” [see pg. 241 of your book].
Pg. 217, 221, 223 & 237 [and pg. 9] – Henry died 9/1823, so he had no wife or child.
Pg. 217, 221, 222 and 237 – only Thomas was born in England. Anne Eliza, Mary
Jane, and Henry were born in Pennsylvania, after William and Mary had emigrated in
1818.
Pg. 221 - since Henry had no wife or child, Matilda Staunton should have been #5,
and Matthew Henry Staunton should have been #6.
Pg. 222, #2 – Eliza Ann Field’s mother’s maiden name was “Glover”.
Pg. 222 – Eliza Ann Staunton died on 11/29/1864.
Pg. 222 – William Field Staunton died on 11/29/1885.
