    I am interested in Robert Jack, born 1706 of Ardstraw. He lived in the townland of Glenglush in Ardstraw on 50 acres. After Robert’s death in 1788, this land was taken over by Samuel Craig. Robert Jack was buried in Ardstraw in the Craig family grave. I am interested in finding out whether Robert Jack was related to the Craig family; perhaps his wife was a Craig and the farm at Ardstraw was left to her nephew Samuel Craig. I saw on a pedigree on Family Search that his will spoke of 3 brothers in the USA. Does anyone have a copy of the will as the original would have been destroyed in the Irish troubles.
