Henry Craytin

Henry Craytin (Yazoo County)

State House: 1880-1881

Born: c. 1835 in Georgia

According to the 1880 House Journal, he was a farmer and minister. Listed on the 1870, 1880, and 1900 census in Yazoo County with wife Nancy and children. His estimated birth year varies widely on the census, from 1832 (1870) to 1836 (1880) to 1843 (1900). The spelling of his surname also varies widely; I’ve used the spelling provided in the House Journal.
