I have 2 grandfathers in Orange County between 1725-1785 that I am having finding some information on:
My William CRAIGE married to Margaret LOGAN (the widow LONG). He died in Orange and we have his will and inventory. He q=was a cofounder of New Hope Presbyterian  in Orange around 1755. Need help determining when he left Scotland and arrive in the colonies. 
His son David CRAIG (he dropped the e) I have his will, inventory, land deeds, marriage records, place of death. I do not have and can not prove Rev War service. I have jury and court records where is was active in the courts. There is a headstone memorial at New Hope listing him as a rev soldier. He is listed on a King's mountain rooster also. I am desperately trying to find addition documents to help support or disproof his service, his wife was Eleanor CRAIG. He brothers John, James as were in the war. 
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Both are mentioned in Rev. D. I. CRAIG'S journal.
